The Lightship Overfalls (LV118) is Sussex County’s only National Historic Landmark and Delaware’s only maritime landmark.

The ship stands majestically at the edge of Lewes Canalfront Park, welcoming young and old to explore its wonders and learn about this important piece of maritime history. The American Lightship Museum exhibits maritime artifacts from the lightship era.

With the lightship as its centerpiece, the Overfalls Foundation collects, preserves, honors and teaches the maritime history of Lewes, Delaware Bay and the coastal region.

The Overfalls Foundation is an all-volunteer organization. Funds raised support the preservation and maintenance of this important historic vessel, local scholarships, educational programs for children and adults, and the preservation of maritime history through the vessel and its artifacts.
