Winter Update

A hardy group of volunteers hung holiday wreaths in November. They were removed in January to be replaced by ice.

It has been quiet this winter as we all hibernate and wait for spring to arrive. By the time you read this, we will have started our spring Docent training program and our schedule for the 2022 season has been posted at

We will be starting tours in June, 2022 and running most Saturdays until mid-October. Three tours per day will have 12 guests for each trip. We will be very busy. Preservation activities will begin in April when we re-open the lighthouse.  If you are interested in volunteering as a Docent or Preservationist, we have a new email address. Please contact us at Preliminary plans for 2022, in addition to the tours and normal preservation activities, include removing the plywood cover under the cottage, cleaning and painting the area and some additional work on the landing platform. Planned funding by the State of Maryland will allow us to complete this work in the fall.

Tours begin in June


The duration of the tour is 2 hours and includes a 30 minute boat ride to the lighthouse, a docent led tour of the interior, and a 30 minute return boat ride. Tours depart from Annapolis, Maryland. The specific dock is located at waters edge behind the Annapolis Maritime Museum located at 723 2nd St Annapolis, MD 21403. The vessel will be moored at the closest pier to the Horn Point Marina.

Three tours are offered each day. One at 9:00 am, one at 11:00 am and the third at 1:00 pm
