After more than a year of rehabilitation at the Maryland Conservation Lab, the War of 1812 cannon has been returned to Concord Point! We are excited to have it back, especially with the burning of Havre de Grace Bicentennial next May 3. The cannon marks the spot where John O’Neill singlehandedly fired on the British during their attack. John O’Neill was our first light keeper, in part because of his heroics that day.
Come take your photo with the cannon today!
