Historic Frying Pan Tower Built in 1964

Be Part of History: How You Can Help Restore Frying Pan Tower

The Frying Pan Tower, a beacon of resilience rising from the Atlantic just off the coast of North Carolina, isn’t just a historical landmark; it’s a symbol of resilience and environmental stewardship for marine research, education, and safety to the mariners at sea. But years of rust and the relentless ocean poundings have taken their toll. At FPTower Inc., we’re dedicated to restoring, protecting and preserving this icon for generations to come.

And that’s where you come in.

Volunteering with FPTower Inc. isn’t just about wielding a paintbrush or tightening a bolt – it’s about leaving your mark on a piece of history. It’s about joining a passionate community dedicated to a common goal.
