The Old Baldy Foundation works to provide education outreach to the surrounding communities about the history of the Old Baldy Lighthouse and the Cape Fear region and its waterways. Today, Bald Head Island is known as a popular beach destination with the unique charm of being a car free island. Many of the island visitors are unaware of the rich history of Bald Head Island and the Old Baldy Lighthouse.
The Old Baldy Foundation campus is an education resource used to share the abundant history of Bald Head Island. It features the Old Baldy Lighthouse, an oil house, and a keeper's cottage replica which houses history museum and small gift shop. A long term project of the Foundation is to build a large museum that allows us to expand our exhibits.
