Cape Romain Light
"McClellanville, South Carolina"
"This light sits on Raccoon Key, about 10 miles southwest of the entrance to the Santee River. It replaced the original tower (still standing nearby) which was built in 1827 but determined to be inadequate by the Lighthouse Board. This new light has a 150-foot-tall octagonal pyramidal tower. It was known for years as the leaning lighthouse, because its foundation began to sink after it was built."
