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.

This is one of my most favorite lighthouses! The shape is unique and surrounding park is beautiful! The place wasn’t open when I was there so I didn’t get a chance to go in or climb it. Lots of places to park yourself for a...More

We enjoyed seeing this. It's a beautiful place. There is a small gift shop and area to browse about the history of the lighthouse. Former lighthouse keepers went through a rigorous ritual going up and down the stairs to keep the lighthouse lit in the...More

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

This is a great place to visit and takes in so much of the history of the lighthouse. You can climb to the very top and what a view.

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
