Cape Romain Lighthouse, situated on a barrier island within the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge in McClellanville, SC is a historic maritime landmark built in 1827 to aid ship navigation along the treacherous South Carolina coast. Its classic coastal lighthouse architecture features a white tower with a black lantern room and played a vital role in ensuring maritime safety until its decommissioning in 1937. Despite its remote location, the lighthouse remains a symbol of the region's maritime heritage and commitment to wildlife conservation within the pristine refuge, though access is limited and visitors typically engage in guided boat tours and outdoor activities to experience its natural beauty and rich ecosystem.
