The Baker Shoal Range Front Light was a lighthouse in Delaware, United States, on the Delaware River at Port Penn.

History[edit]

The Baker Range Front Light was discontinued in 1924 and a new steel tower was built. The original lighthouse was removed or destroyed and the new tower is an active aid to navigation.

There was a Baker Shoal Range Rear Light that originally served as the Port Penn-Reedy Island Range Light. It became the Baker Shoal Rear Range Light in 1904 when the old range was discontinued due to the C&D channel moving.
