One Weekend, Two Lighthouses

Commemoration

National Lighthouse Weekend on Aug. 3 and 4 will offer an opportunity to visit two local lighthouses. The open houses will be held from 10 am to 5 pm on the first weekend in August.

Head to Piney Point for a fun and free Open House Weekend in recognition of National Lighthouse Day, celebrated each year on Aug. 7. Enjoy tours of the museum, Potomac River Maritime Exhibit, lighthouse tower, and grounds. The official day as designated by Congress, August 7, 1989, is the anniversary of the signing of the August 7, 1789 Congressional Act “for the establishment and support of lighthouses, beacons, buoys, and public piers” and the date of the first commissioned Federal lighthouse. Admission will be free, but donations will be greatly appreciated.

The Piney Point Lighthouse Museum is at 44720 Lighthouse Road in Piney Point, MD 20674.
