“the oldest lighthouse in Maryland that still accessible”
Concord Point Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in Maryland that is accessible to the public. Pooles Island Light (built 2 years earlier) is within Aberdeen Proving Ground and off-limits. Built by John Donahoo, the 2 lighthouses are very similar, from the local granite construction to the mahogony doors. The original Keeper's Dwelling still exists at Concord Point and has been fully restored to its 1884 version. Concord Point Lighthouse is open to the public from April to October on weekends, weather permitting. Here are some interesting facts about the Lighthouse and Keeper's Dwelling
45 hour road trip, and this was our favorite stop. Absolutely GORGEOUS. Not much to do, but a great place for pictures, a picnic, and a minute to yourself/to relax. Lots of locals out walking and happy to chat and take pictures.
Nice place to stretch your legs and use the restroom.
Not super exciting but it's a nice walk along the water to get a break from driving. It's on a quiet street with curbside parking.
Though it was raining, the lighthouse and the nearby dock and boardwalk were quite lovely. We also enjoyed a visit to the nearby museum. It was a quick but fun stop to start our road trip :-)
