T1: Choptank River Lighthouse
The Choptank River Lighthouse is a 2012 reconstruction of an original six-sided screw-pile lighthouse used historically along the Choptank River. The original lighthouse was completed in 1871 and stood between Castle Haven and Benoni Points on the river. The replica was completed using records from the National Archives and now sits in the Cambridge City Marina. The lighthouse tour includes a visit to a museum exhibit about the original lighthouse’s history and local maritime traditions. Participants will enjoy a guided tour of the lighthouse featuring stories about the lighthouse as well as how it fits into the historical context of Cambridge and the Chesapeake Bay.
