To aid ships sailing the treacherous mid-channel of Delaware Bay, a series of lighthouses were constructed in the 19th Century and the early 20th Century. Most of these lighthouses are still operating. All are automated. They stand on pedestals surrounded by water out of sight of land. Countless lives have been saved by these guardians of the Delaware Bay.
A special note, Cape May Lighthouse is operated as a museum, which you can climb, by the Mid Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities.
Brandywine Shoal Lighthouse is now owned by the Brandywine Shoal Lighthouse Friends with Director Jeff Stewart at the helm and will be eventually opened to the public for access to this historic light.
