“Light house”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This old lighthouse is kept up by a private group, and therefore has limited hours, but the plaque out front is very informative. The lighthouse sits right in the Mason-Dixon Line between Maryland and Delaware. It's worth a quick visit.

“Wonderful Part of History”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

The lighthouse is a great part of the Mid-Atlantic maritime history. The Friends of the Lighthouse do a lot to keep it up. Disappointing that you can't access the stairway to see the lens.

“Lighthouse”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

So glad this historic site has been preserved. Although it was closed when we visited it and the setting was disappointing (was in the middle of a trailer park), the history of the lighthouse was available on a sign. Worth a stop by!!

“Historically interesting”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Definitely not your romantic setting, since this lighthouse has mobile homes on one side and condos on the other, but still historically interesting. It was closed but since I really am not fond of heights it did not matter. The marker itself is a real interesting relic. If you really want to visit, plan your times.

“Bike to the lighthouse”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I biked by early in the morning, so it was closed. Check tour times before heading over. Placard boards are informative.
