Choptank River Lighthouse, Cambridge

4.6
#4 of 9 in Things to do in Cambridge
This is an exact replica, completed in 2012, of the Choptank River Lighthouse, which guided ships in the Choptank River from 1871 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.
