Upper Middle Lightship

Delaware Bay


The Upper Middle Lightship was also known as the Cross Ledge Lightship or Lightboat #2. It would warn vessels about the shallower parts of Cross Ledge. For several years it and other lightships would be withdrawn during the winter months to avoid the ice.

It was replaced by the Cross Ledge Lighthouse in 1875.
