The Friends of Concord Point Lighthouse


The Friends of Concord Point Lighthouse, Inc. is a nonprofit organization, of members and volunteers, that have been “keeping the light” for over forty years. In short, we preserve and promote the historic Concord Point Lighthouse and Keeper’s House in Havre de Grace, Maryland.

Concord Point Lighthouse was built in 1827. Thus, making it one of the oldest lighthouses in continuous operation on the East Coast. The Lighthouse and Keeper’s House are fully restored. Both are open to the public on weekends from April to October. In addition, educational tours are conducted by volunteer keepers throughout the year.

Located where the Susquehanna River meets the tidal flow of the Chesapeake Bay, the Lighthouse property anchors one end of a waterfront promenade offering spectacular views of the river and the Upper Chesapeake Bay. Therefore, it is a popular site for wedding ceremonies and special events.

We invite you to explore this website to learn more about the history and construction of the Lighthouse. Or, to find more information on Events, Private Events, Tour Information, membership in our organization or volunteering.

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