This is a place that you almost pass by, but if you find it, take a moment and learn about the history behind...how it was one of the important stand points against the British during the revolution...visit the small maritime museum too.
Nice lighthouse and history

This is a short lighthouse by lighthouse standards but it has a few interesting points. It is built with Port Deposit granite, not only the tower but the steps as well. I had never seen granite steps before in a lighthouse. It is run by a small organization and gives its tours for free. They have a nice gift shop and exhibits in the keepers quarters which are across the street. This too is unique as I have never been to a lighthouse with the keeper living so far away. The top has a ladder which is difficult but manageable with children. Its all part of the allure of the lighthouse. Great place to visit.
Lots of local history in this very spot

Small 1827 lighthouse is built were the tidal waters from Chesapeake go up to on Susquehanna river. It is one of the oldest operational lighthouses on East coast. Next to it there is a historic cannon which was fired in 1813 by the brave fighter trying to delay the British attack. Across from the lighthouse there is the Keeper's House. Concord Point Lighthouse is one of the main attractions of Havre de Grace.
Scary to climb!

This is a very small lighthouse, but the very top was scary as it was an iron rung ladder going into the very top. I was a little nervous as I had 4, 6 and 7 year olds with me.
