Historical Lighthouse and more
Aug 01, 2014 by: Gringo66 from Ephrata, Pennsylvania
Besides the lighthouse, there's a park and museum. I only walked in the park and viewed the lighthouse. The park has benches for relaxing and taking in the bay views. It's a nice place to visit, but it looks like it gets busy on weekends. I went on a Saturday, late afternoon. Also, it looks like one can climb to the top of the lighthouse inside, but I can't comment because I only saw people doing it. If you like lighthouses and a nice view of the bay, GO. Enjoy!

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.
Must See Historical spot

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.
