  • Finally got the chance to tour this lighthouse and am sure glad I did! Stairs are steep, no handicap access. I didn't require it but just wanted to put it out there. Attraction is FREE and run by a gr...  read more »
  • Interesting history about the lighthouse, now situated next to Pier5 hotel. Not your typical lighthouse construction and that made it interesting for me. 
  • 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
  • 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!
  • Quaint historical destination. A great visit to the interior or for a quick stop by on the easy to get to pier right next to the National Aquarium.
  • A very different kind of lighthouse... nice to visit.
  • Love it
