More than just a day of observance, National Lighthouse Day is a time for Hatteras to reflect on its company heritage, and how the lighthouse in our logomark represents some of our core values.
What is National Lighthouse Day?
On August 7, 1789, an Act was signed by Congress for the establishment and support of lighthouses, beacons, buoys and public piers. Two hundred years later in 1989, Congress passed a resolution in celebration of the signing of the Act and the commissioning of the first Federal lighthouse, designating August 7th as National Lighthouse Day.
Since then, we have recognized and celebrated the important role lighthouses have played in our country’s history, and the values of safety, heroism and American ingenuity in which they represent. From protecting our coasts, to guiding our sailors, America’s lighthouses are something we continue to appreciate and remember.
Hatteras’ brand story began with the lighthouse.
Hatteras was named after Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, a favorite travel destination of Charlie Duerr, who founded Hatteras Press 35 years ago. Standing along its shores is the iconic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, often referred to as “America’s Lighthouse,” carrying the distinction of being the tallest in the country.
More than just a part of our logomark, the lighthouse represents a core value of Hatteras’…to be that guiding light for our clients, offering the comfort of knowing they’ll always be taken care of.
