Federal Point Light number 3 was a lighthouse at Federal Point near Kure Beach in New Hanover County, North Carolina. It was an active light from about 1866 to around 1879. There have been earlier towers from 1817 to 1863 when destroyed during the Civil War.
Federal Point is on the inland side on the southern end of Pleasure Island, a barrier island. It is near Fort Fisher and North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and Kure Beach.
Stated position is based on reference to foundation of Federal Point LH #2 and statements suggesting #3 was near or under the aquarium.
