Community: Bald Head Island


Many stories have fateful endings on Bald Head Island. In 1806, Joseph Swain mortally shot the island's first lighthouse keeper during a hunting accident.

Event Details

Another lighthouse keeper named Devaney Jennette died atop Cape Fear Light Station over one hundred years later. Legend says the death of Theodosia Burr Alston, the daughter of Vice President Aaron Burr, occurred on Bald Head Island after a shipwreck on Frying Pan Shoals. Other legends claim pirates haunt Bald Head, perhaps the pirate ghost of Stede Bonnet. Join the Old Baldy Foundation for a Halloween edition of the historic happy hour series featuring the fateful endings of Bald Head Island. Learn fact from fiction during this legendary evening.
Join us on the Old Baldy grounds at 5pm on Thursday, October 29th for this event! The event is free to attend and no registration is required.
