Choptank River Lighthouse, Cambridge

#3 of 8 in Things to do in Cambridge
Lighthouse Landmark
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.

  • Nice view of the water and all the boats docked here. You can tour the lighthouse on your own at no charge.  more »
  • Seeing the lighthouse was GREAT but what a fun adventure getting to that point! We knew it would be closed because it was 'off season'. We called the phone number listed to make 'special arrangements'...  more »
  • A short distance/walk from historic district down to harbor where lighthouse is located. A nice park area.  more »
