  • Love it here. Not only is the lighthouse beautiful and unique, but the surrounding grounds are gorgeous! The butterfly gardens have so many different and varied plants and flowers! It's a wonderful experience.
  • Well maintained. The staff was well educated on Hereford's history. An informative video proved a great introduction before touring the building and grounds. I took a brief travel into the past and left with a better understanding of the present. Thank you Hereford.
