Liston Range Rear Light, County Road 2, Biddles Corner, New Castle County, DE



Significance: The Liston Range Rear Light merits attention for two reasons. First, it is a river range light a type virtually ignored in the historical literature on lighthouses. Secondly, it is a wrought iron structure, and therefore atypical. The U.S. Lighthouse Establishment more often constructed its iron lighthouses out of cast iron.
