12th Annual Maryland Lighthouse Challenge

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - On the weekend of September 21-22, in partnership with the lighthouse organizations across the state, volunteers of the Chesapeake Chapter will do just that during the 2019 Maryland Lighthouse Challenge.

One of the missions of the Chesapeake Chapter of the United States Lighthouse Society is to educate, inform and entertain those who are interested in Chesapeake Bay area lighthouses.

Participants who visit participating lighthouses during the allotted hours of 8:00 a.m. -6:00 p.m. will receive a complimentary souvenir at each.

The society says it is not necessary to visit all the lighthouses to participate and they can be visited in any order. Those who visit all the attractions will receive an additional “completer” souvenir proclaiming that “they’ve seen the lights!”

There are two additional bonus lights, the Blackistone Lighthouse Replica at the site of Maryland’s birthplace, St. Clement’s Island, and Millers Island Lighthouse to be viewed from the popular Dock of the Bay Restaurant in Sparrows Point.

The Chesapeake Chapter says the Bonus Lights do not count toward event “completion”, but will earn participants extra souvenirs!

There will also be an add-on Bonus Cruise aboard Sawyer Charters, departing from Maryland’s Eastern Shore to see some of the Chesapeake Bay’s more elusive lighthouses, and an early bird special on Friday, Sept. 20, which includes all of the Eastern Shore attractions, for those who want to jump start their Challenge adventure.

Participants can visit Hooper Strait, Choptank River Replica and Sandy Point Shoal Lighthouses during the “early bird”.

The society says lighthouses are an important aspect of our state’s maritime heritage and remain treasured keepsakes of a by-gone era. Participants will find these magnificent structures and the history
surrounding them water’s edge at some of the most scenic destinations statewide.
