We were on the Southport to Ft. Fisher ferry and discovered this gem, just as you are approaching the Southport ferry landing. Aside from the fact that this is there, the ferry ride to Ft. Fisher is a wonderful outing!

Sadly, this little lighthouse is on privately owed property and not open to the public. Make sure to look for it from the Ft Fisher Ferry (on the right as you approach Southport/on the left if your leaving ), just ask the ferry attendant and...More

This lighthouse at Price's Creek is small and very old. There is nice foliage around it and the water makes a pretty picture.

Took a personal tour on board the Encore with Captain Betsy. One of the sights that we saw was Price's Creek Lighthouse. Captain Betsy and First Mate Jane provided us with a wealth of history, including this lighthouse.

You'd probably never know this lighthouse was even here if someone hadn't told you about it. It's located just before you reach Southport via the Ft. Fisher Ferry. It's very small so try to find it on your next trip!

We enjoyed looking for this little known lighthouse on the ferry between Southport and Fort Fisher. Get on the left side of the ferry when leaving Southport and you'll spot it right before the long dock.

It would be great if you could get close to this old beauty, but it is on private property and you can get there. You can see it from a distance on the ferry ride from Southport to Kure, but that is about all.

Little hidden lighthouse if only visible from the water of the Cape Fear River. You get a great view of this light house from the Fort Fisher Ferry - departing from Southport as soon as you are in the waterway!

Not accessible by land, but good to see a piece of North Carolina history on the ferry ride from Ft Fisher to Southport NC

Not a lot to look at but a very interesting history. This can be viewed from the ferry out of Southport and is worth looking for. The only surviving lighthouse along the Cape Fear River.

I have taken the ferry from Fort Fisher to Southport many times and never knew it existed or seen it. Is it only visible leaving Southport ferry? If so that would explain why I've never noticed it.
