Thomas Point Lighthouse and Rosie Parks are two pieces of Chesapeake Bay history. Thomas Point Lighthouse was constructed in 1875 on Thomas Point Shoal at the mouth of the South River in Maryland. She is the only active screw-pile lighthouse remaining in its original position and is an exceptionally beautiful lighthouse. The Skipjack in this Bottle is based on the "Rosie Parks." "Rosie Parks" was built in 1955 by Bronza Parks and is undergoing a full, originally outfitted, restoration by the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in Maryland. She was a oyster dredger, and an example of the traditional boats that once frequented the Bay in the Winter Months.
