  • One of my favorite places to visit. I don't get to come here enough. Immaculately kept, this little gem of local history is kept alive for our enjoyment and education. Filled with local donations and pieces of history, this place will not disappoint.
  • Well done! We are avid lighthouse visitors and we just adored this one. The museum is a nice blend of maritime and local history. Very interesting local baseball exhibit. Friendly staff and the tour books are a nice touch. Great history there!
  • The Old Lighthouse Museum had a wealth of historical displays and artifacts from the area. If you are new to the area or long time resident this is a most stop for everyone.
  • Actually I used their electric vehicle charge point. It was late at night and the museum was closed
  • Very nice, well maintained museum showing the rich history of the area.
