Completed in 2012, this is a replica of the Choptank River Lighthouse that guided ships in the Choptank River until 1964, when it was dismantled by the U.S. Coast Guard. It served as an unforgettable icon to many—for generations of watermen, for visitors who came by steamboat, for sailors in regattas.

Today the replica has become a new icon for the city of Cambridge and all of Dorchester County, Maryland.

  • Super pretty area and a cute lighthouse!
  • The views are breathtaking. Prepare to take pics, but it's really hard to capture the natural beauty digitally. Historical info was worth reading. I'd like to see a sunset from there.
