Outer Banks Conservationists hired Jenny Edwards in 1999 to research the history of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse keepers and to compile these histories into a book. To Illuminate the Dark Space is the result of Ms. Edwards 25 interviews, 75 hours of tapes, over 200 phone calls and 320 hours of writing. The book was completed in time for the first lighthouse keeper’s descendant’s reunion held October 23, 1999 and given to attending descendants. The book is currently out of print. OBC hopes to update this book in the future and have a second printing. You may download the PDF of the book by clicking on the cover.
