With its two stations and five outbuildings, Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station (pronounced chi-ka-ma-COM-i-co) is the most complete site of all remaining life-saving stations in North Carolina and one of the most complete sites in the nation. This site and museum is located on Hatteras Island in the village of Rodanthe on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Our purpose as a Historical Association is to restore, preserve, protect, educate and interpret the rich history of these valiant men and their dedication to the U.S. Life-Saving Service, as well as interpreting the history of the buildings and artifacts. We are open to the public from mid-April through November.
Our station requires the dedication of many volunteers who give freely of their time and talents. They provide all kinds of support with the goal of sharing the history of the station with the public. Grass cutting to glass glazing, house cleaning to hospitality, historical interpretation to historical preservation and a smile to greet our visitors.
Help is needed in the following areas:
- Administrative support
- Gift shop attendants
- Tour providers
- Board of Directors
- Rehabilitation projects
Thank you, volunteers, for sharing your talents for the betterment of Chicamacomico.
Your gift of time is valuable to us. Give us a call to discuss your availability.
