The Friends of Concord Point Lighthouse

The Friends of Concord Point Lighthouse, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the historic Concord Point Lighthouse and Keeper's Dwelling in Havre de Grace, Maryland. Our
members and volunteers have been "keeping the light" for thirty years.

The Concord Point Lighthouse was built in 1827 where the Susquehanna River meets the tidal flow of the Chesapeake Bay. It is one of the oldest lighthouses in continuous operation on the East Coast. Fully restored, the Lighthouse and Keeper's Dwelling are open to the public on weekends from April to October.

The Lighthouse property anchors one end of a waterfront promenade offering spectacular views of the river and the Upper Chesapeake Bay. It is a popular site for wedding ceremonies and special events. Educational tours are conducted throughout the year by volunteer keepers.

We invite you to explore this website to learn more about the history and construction details of the Lighthouse and Light Station properties, or for information about weddings and other events, lighthouse tours, membership in our organization or volunteering.

The Concord Point Lighthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The British invaded Havre de Grace!  May 3, 4 and 5, 2013

It was a great weekend throughout the city and things were busy here at the Lighthouse and Keeper's House!

From cannons firing to concerts and fireworks, the Lighthouse presided over it all.

Perhaps the British will come again next year!
