Small, but Interesting.

This is the smallest lighthouse that I have ever seen, but it is well-preserved and it offers a nice view of the Chesapeake Bay, Susquehanna River convergence area. The upper room was hot, tight and filled with insects. I would visit again on a cool day in the Autumn.

Decided to take an afternoon trip to Concord Point Lighthouse with family in from Florida. If you plan on visiting this incredible place, look up when they let you walk up the steps into to light house. Also know that there is a wonderful promenade that wanders along the shore line for about a quarter mile with views of the Susquehana River as it empties into the Chesapeake Bay. You will find a small, yet very good eatery with fish, ice cream, etc. for your summer enjoyment. No admission costs and beautiful pictures if you have your camera. In fact, bring your camera!
National Lighthouse Day

We got lucky, and it was National Lighthouse Day on Thursday so we got to walk to the top of the lighthouseabout 20 steps and then 10 steps up the ladder. It was a nice view and the volunteers were very nice and helpful. Make sure to stop in the Light keepers house across the street.

A Chesapeake Bay Sentinel
Aug 07, 2014 by: jeffl499 from Alexandria, VA
Set on the south shore of Havre de Grace, the Concord Pointe Light has been in service since the early part of the 19th century, providing a welcome signal to mariners. John Donahoo was a renown builder of lighthouses along the Chesapeake Bay with a distinctive style that is evident in this light. The surrounding park has been nicely developed to provide just the right setting for this sentinel that has been so well preserved. The keeper's house across the street is open at specific hours throughout the week for more insight into the life surrounding lighthouses. The narrative account of the British invasion of Havre de Grace from an island in the Bay is detailed on a marker along with a well-preserved cannon. Enjoy Concord Point and then walk the Promenade over to the Memorial Park for the full flavor of this area.
