Smith Island Originals is a line created by Turtle Central that reflects the heritage and history of the Smith Island Complex.  We have been developing this project for quite some time and used images either donated or taken by our staff.  Be on the lookout for more Smith Island Originals! 

Captain Charlie's is a complex on Bald Head Island that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, This row of cottages was named after the longest-serving lighthouse keeper for the Cape Fear Light, Captain Charlie Swan, who served at the light for 30 years. The three cottages served as housing for the lightkeepers and their families. A fourth smaller building, known as the utility building, served as the kitchen. Captain Charlie's has since been renovated and stands as a reminder of simpler times and just how simple life can be. (Source: Bald Head: A History of Smith Island and Cape Fear)
