Trip Advisor 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.

Trip Advisor 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.

Trip Advisor Picturesque, historic, educational and relaxing

This was the second visit my wife and I have made to this waterfront area. This trip we were also joined by our married daughter, husband and two grandsons. The lighthouse area is a very pleasant place to enjoy the day. The lighthouse is in wonderful shape and quite historic as a Chesapeake maritime artifact. My older grandson and i climbed to the top after speaking with the knowledgeable volunteer who greeted us at the enterance. There is a basket for donations if you care to help preserve the history. The spiral stairs to the top may not be for everyone but the beacon lens at the top was magnificant and the view was worth the effort. Those on the ground were able to take some great photos of us in the very top windows. The volunteers give coupons you take to the equally historic giftshop across the road for complimentary post cards and a chance to peruse the original old house architecture and available souvenirs. The park area of the lighthouse includes a wharf for sailboat watching and entrance to the boardwalk that meanders to the marina (but that's a seperate review altogether). Highly recommended way to enjoy the bay and ambience of the wonderful Havre de Grace area.

Trip Advisor Shooting in the Dark

Our photography group arrived at 6AM to do a dawn shoot. The cloud colors were great that day and I got a lot of good shots. The docks made for an excellent location to set up a tripod to shoot both the bay and the lighthouse. A nice quiet location at that time of day!

Trip Advisor Historic!

Definitely worth a visit. Very picturesque as it sits right near the water. Photography really shines (sorry for he pun) during full moon and sunrise. Make sure to read the historic markers.
