  • We love lighthouses and this is a small one, but has a great history for helping to guide boats through the Chesapeake Bay. I've climbed it before, but the inside must have been closed. This visit we ...  more »
  • This is a free attraction (although a $1 donation is encouraged) that is worth the time to walk through. The information is very interesting.  more »
  • Most people tend to think of lighthouses looking like Portland Head Light in Maine, tall and white, but a lot of the lighthouses in Maryland look like this one. Unique and awesome in their own right. ...  more »

  • A fun little (free!) attraction on the waterfront. Learn more about life on the Chesapeake in a neat museum. Worth checking out if you've never been, and throwing them a couple of bucks in donation for the tidy preservation of a slice of history.
  • About how many times will you get to step inside a lighthouse that was once in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. A must see for anyone interested in lighthouses and history.
  • Associated with the Preservation Society and Historic Ships, the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is a free (donations appreciated though!) attraction situated near the National Aquarium in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Ascend the staircase and you'll enter the second floor of what one was a manned screw-pile lighthouse built at the mouth of the Patapsco River (literally, SCREWED right into the water's floor). There's plenty of information about the history and significance of the structure itself, as well as Baltimore's extensive use as a seaport. The staffer there at the time, Jamaal, was very friendly and happy to answer questions. If you're in the Inner Harbor and looking for a quick, 15-30-minute diversion, definitely stop by the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse!
  • I have been inside, seen it. How can I get a stamp for my log, just recently joined the lighthouse society; does anyone know? How do I get that info? J Torockio
  • Very cool building!
