Not the tallest lighthouse I've seen, but cute none the less. Well maintained grounds which is surrounded by a park. Nice little stop.

I enjoy seeing lighthouses, but saw only the outside from both sides. The setting is in a well used park.

But when we got there is only slightly taller than a two story house. It was worth seeing but it's certainly not a just-see attraction.

Passed by on our walk at the park. Very well kept and plenty of history provided on the outside. Our only disappointment was that we were there on a day when it was closed.

Really nice place run by volunteers. You get a nice tour with the history of the lighthouse and then you can climb up to the top and enjoy the view. Plenty of street parking

Yes, Pat, we certainly do still hand certificates out for climbing. They were initially intended for kids, but we realized that many adults wanted them as well; so just ask for yours at the desk! We are currently closed... More
