frisco pier’s last hurrah
The summer of 2016 will be the swan song for the Frisco Pier. After 50+ years of pounding by the sea and storms, the pier is too damaged to repair as Irene Nolan writes in the Island Free Press.
“It’s been a long time in coming, but it now appears certain that this summer will be the last hurrah for the Cape Hatteras Fishing Pier in Frisco, aka the Frisco Pier, a beloved community landmark since it was built in 1962.
Fans of the historic old wooden structure can still enjoy hanging around what’s left of the pier through the summer and into the early fall, but come later this year, man will finally accomplish something Mother Nature has been unable to do — take it down.”
