Significance: The Principal Keeper's Dwelling is significant as an existing example of the type of quarters erected for the lighthouse keepers during the late-19th century. It is the latest of two keeper's dwellings on site. It was built in 1870, during the construction of the new (current) lighthouse tower, using surplus materials. As an integral part of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse site, it conveys a sense of the lifestyle and history of lighthouse keepers.
