Light Hearted ep 280 – Alexa Price, Historic Ships in Baltimore

Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse

Located in the inner harbor of Baltimore, Maryland, Historic Ships of Baltimore celebrates more than 200 years of Maryland’s naval and maritime history. The site’s attractions include the sloop-of-war Constellation, the last sail-only warship designed and built by the United States Navy. Among the other highlights are the USS Torsk, a Navy submarine commissioned in 1944, and the 1936 U.S. Coast Guard Cutter 37.

Lightship Chesapeake

For lighthouse and lightship buffs there are two historic attractions. The lightship LV116, also known as the Lightship Chesapeake, is a National Historic Landmark and one of a small number of preserved lightships in the U.S.

The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is a screw-pile structure that began service in 1856 at the entrance to the Patapsco River, on the approach to Baltimore Harbor. The City of Baltimore had the structure moved to its new home on the city’s waterfront in 1988.
