The place where you are standing marks the terminus of a seawall constructed along the southern shores of Old Point Comfort at various periods between 1895 to the mid-twentieth century. This seawall extended from Jetty No. 1 at this location to the Old Navy Wharf, located west of the Chamberlin Hotel. constructed between 1900 and 1906. The first concrete section at this location extended to the west end of the engineering wharf abutment. This wall replaced an earlier wooden bulkhead and was later reinforced by sheet pilings and capped in concrete. This sea wall was replaced by the current sea wall between 2007 and 2009.
