Lighting the way for all that travel through the Chesapeake Bay towards Baltimore stand the Baltimore Harbor Light house. Built in 1908, the lighthouse sits at the mouth of the Magothy River. The last lighthouse to be built on the Chesapeake Bay, at the time of building, it was world’s tallest caisson style light.
In 1964, the Baltimore Harbor Light became the only lighthouse in the United States that relied on nuclear energy for power. But that was short-lived and the lighthouse is now functional on solar power.
Sold to a private party at auction in June, 2006 for the sum of $260,000. Can you imagine? This could be your home, and the daily commute would be done by boat.
