Saving Lives at Chicamacomico

Record #:
This Coast Guard branch has a long and illustrious history of saving lives throughout the Crystal Coast waterways. Among the seven stations established in 1871, it has the distinction of maintaining its original buildings, such as the original 1874 station and 1907 Midgett House. The station established to respond to the area’s propensity for shipwrecks also has the distinction of participating in wartime rescue missions, such as the crew from the torpedoed SS Mirlo.
