Sharkfin Shoal Light

The Sharkfin Shoal Light was a screw-pile lighthouse located at the mouth of the Nanticoke River in the Chesapeake Bay.


This light was constructed in 1892 to replace the Clay Island Light to the northeast. In 1964 the house was dismantled and a skeleton tower light placed on the foundation.
