Plan Your Visit


Built in 1827, Concord Point Lighthouse is the second-oldest lighthouse in Maryland and the northernmost lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay. It was also the oldest lighthouse in continuous service, in operation from 1827-1975. The original keeper’s dwelling still sits at Concord Point and has been fully restored to its 1884 iteration. The lighthouse was home to John O'Neill, a hero of the War of 1812 and the first light keeper.

Fully restored, the lighthouse and keeper’s house are open to the public on weekends from April to October. Educational tours are conducted throughout the year by volunteer keepers. The lighthouse property anchors one end of a waterfront promenade and offers spectacular views of the river and the Upper Chesapeake Bay. It is a popular site for wedding ceremonies and special events.
