Built in 1828, it was built to mark a shoal that often caught ships. It wasn't until 1857 that a Fresnel lens was installed and in 1926 a modern electric lamp replaced the oil lamp. It was automated in 1986 and now is owned by the Calvert Marine Museum (the owners of Drum Point below as well) ARLHS # USA-195
