An abandoned quarantine station at the mouth of the Cape Fear River near Southport now has a light to warn boaters of the concrete slab in the water.
The 19th century station was the site of a 2012 boating accident that caused one death and several injuries.
According to reports, on Aug. 4, 2012, Ed and Barbara Lee Pierce of Wilmington and two other passengers were in the Pierce’s boat heading to Wilmington when they rammed into the concrete platform.
