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.
