Happy Halloween from Fort Pickering Lighthouse
Fort Pickering Lighthouse is one of five Lighthouses actively guiding navigation through Salem Sound into Salem Harbor. Fort Pickering Light commemorates the lively maritime heritage of Winter Island when a Fort defended the harbor, a Lighthouse guarded shipping interests, and an Air Station protected New England waters. Fort Pickering and the former Air Station are on the grounds of Winter Island Maritime Park, a seasonal RV & Tent Campsite which overlooks Fort Pickering Lighthouse.
The Schooner Fame is sailing past the Lighthouse with her modern band of pirates. The Fame is a full-scale replica of the famous privateer ship which captured the first prize in the War of 1812.
