Hatteras Weddings at Chicamacomico

The Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site & Museum in Rodanthe, the northernmost village on Hatteras Island, could be the most overlooked attraction on the Outer Banks. For years I have driven past, Now that I have visited...I can't wait to return."

Jenny Scarborough, The Island Breeze, Hatteras, NC

With its two stations and five outbuildings, Chicamacomico (pronounced chik a ma COM i co) is the most complete site of remaining life-saving stations in North Carolina and one of the nation’s most complete sites. This site is located on Hatteras Island in the village of Rodanthe on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Our purpose is to restore, preserve, protect, educate and interpret the rich history of these valiant men and their dedication to the U.S. Life-Saving Service, as well as interpreting the history of the buildings and artifacts. We are open to the public from mid-April through November, and provide our visitors with tours, programs, reenactments and special events.
