Seven Foot Knoll Lighhouse, an inspiring site-picture by Rose Hammitt.

It took a minute to realize this was a lighthouse when Rose and I first glanced at this lovely cylinderical structure located in Baltimore’s Innner Harbor.

The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is the oldest screwpile lighthouse in Maryland. Built in 1855, the lighthouse is part of the Historic Ships museum (http://www.historicships.org/knoll-lighthouse.html).

The lighthouse had been originally located at the mouth of the Patapsco River that reaches into the Baltimore Harbor.

In 1988, the lighthouse was removed from Seven Foot Knoll, carried by barge, and placed ashore in the Inner Harbor where we enjoyed the wonderful view.
