Description
The Baltimore Light stands in the Chesapeake Bay, about 1.7 miles east of the southern end of Gibson Island. The light is a caisson light with a two story white keeper's residence topped with a black cast iron lantern room.

The lighthouse is privately owned.

This photo was shot from a passing cruise ship returning to port in Baltimore.
