#76089: Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site and Museum

This “life-saving station,” with its decorative board-and-batten walls and elaborately styled eaves, clearly indicates European medieval inspirations for its designer, the architect Frances W. Chandler. It is the only one to survive unchanged of the first 23 built along the Atlantic coast in 1874. The boxy brown-shingled building to the left is an 1892 cookhouse.
