Maritime history is filled with legends of ships and souls lost to watery graves. Lighthouses helped to change that. Radiant white streams beamed from light stations cut their way through smothering fog, wispy mists and pelting rains to help guide ships to shore, and safety.
The Chesapeake Bay has its share of lighthouses. From Point Lookout in the south to Concord Point in Havre De Grace, nine lighthouses are featured here to tell the story of days past when sailors kept a keen eye out for these lifesaving beacons on the Chesapeake.
