Photographer's Note

On the point where the mighty Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay stands the light house that protected vessels from dangerous waters for 148 years. Built in 1827 by master builder John Donahoo, it is the oldest lighthouse in continuous operation in the United States. The light was manned by the O’niell family until 1928. Across the street is the light keepers home restored and preserved and open to the public.
