Light List Data:
Baltimore Light Station -
Historic Significance: High. First and only nuclear powered lighthouse in the United States; site of strontium-90 fuel cell test. This was the largest wooden caisson built in the United States, perhaps in the world up to this time; and it was the deepest caisson to be sunk in the United States.
Historic Integrity: Moderate. The dormers in the mansard roof were taken off when a new roof was installed and then later replaced by the Coast Guard. Deck fitting such as boat davits around the lower gallery have largely been removed. Much of the interior paneling on the exterior walls have been removed due to water damage. Original sash windows and exterior doors have been removed. Otherwise, the station maintains most of its historic integrity.
