Liston Range Rear Light
The Liston Range Rear Light is a historic lighthouse in Biddles Corner, Delaware, just east of Highway 13. It was built in 1877 and was in a group of four lighthouses (two in Delaware and two in New Jersery) that helped ships navigate the Delaware River. At 120 feet in height, the Liston Range Light is the tallest of the four and the only one that retains its fresnel lens; the lenses in the others have been replaced. The lighthouse is constructed in a wrought iron frame, which makes it distinguishable from other lighthouses. The keepers and their assistants lived in houses built next to the lighthouse. Today, it is privately owned and not open to visitors. However, it is clearly visible from Port Penn road.
