She was a wife of the boat captain, lost at sea. She kept the oil lights burning for years, illuminating the home in hopes that her husband would somehow find his way home and back into her arms. Seamen who knew the story named the house Three Mile Station, and used it to identify their location off the Kitty Hawk coast..
The home was visited numerous times by the Wright Brothers while experimenting with their flying gliders and eventually their flying machine. Rebecca chronicles their visits, and how she felt about these two brothers in her diary.
I restored this house with respect to the history with deep abiding love. It is the most photographed house in Kitty Hawk, not a typical beach cabin.
