This past November, the Chesapeake Chapter of the U.S. Lighthouse Society has again led the way with the installation of four additional outdoor display exhibits to the four that they had previously installed. But, this time, they did it through a partnership with the Watermen’s Museum in Yorktown, Virginia, along with support from Pannier Graphics of Gibsonia, Pennsylvania.
The four new interpretative outdoor exhibits, honoring the memory of the York Spit, Tue Marshes, Pages Rock, and Bells Rock lighthouses were installed free of charge by York County. The signs are located along the picturesque mile-long Riverwalk Landing walkway by the Watermen’s Museum.
It is hoped that the interpretative displays will help to educate the public about the lighthouse history of the 34-mile-long York River.
