Fenwick Island Lighthouse
Photograph - Epson Lustre Paper
Fenwick Island Lighthouse is found on the souther Delaware border with Maryland just north of Ocean City, MD. The Fenwick Island lighthouse, built in 1858, was designed to bridge the gap between the lights at Assateague Island, Virginia and Cape Henlopen, Delaware. During certain weather conditions, ships entering the two bays, Chesapeake and Delaware needed a sentinel in the dark area between the two points.
The light built on Fenwick Island is literally on the Mason-Dixon Line dividing north and south. Lit in 1858, a third-order Fresnel lens placed 83 feet above sea level could be viewed over fifteen miles at sea. The light, now in a trailer park is still in use and can be seen daily. The tower is still painted the original white color.
