Built in 1827, Concord Point Lighthouse is an excellent example of several Chesapeake Bay lighthouses built by John Donahoo. Donahoo built Concord Point, Turkey Point, Cove Point, Thomas Point, and Pooles Island lighthouses. All but Thomas Point were shaped like Concord Point. The city has done a great job with park improvements, there is a walk around the shore line, mariners museum, and the lighthouse keepers house is open to the public.

This is a great spot. This spot has the lighthouse,cannon and keepers house. In addition to the great views of the water, the lighthouse and the grounds are wonder ful to explore. The cannon just marvelous.

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.
