Reinterpreting the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse as a Gateway Beacon to the Bay

block Lightship Chesapeake & Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse

The oldest of screw-pile lighthouses on the Bay, Seven Foot Knoll now stands on Baltimore's Inner Harbor and will mark its 150th birthday in 2006. By adopting a comprehensive new approach to interpretation and completing some essential preservation work, the Baltimore Maritime Museum will give lighthouse visitors a fuller sense of the historic role Seven Foot Knoll played as a symbol of long-awaited arrival to immigrants and ships entering the country through Baltimore. In addition, the new interpretive approach will establish this lighthouse as a central interpretive hub in a popular, easily accessible location for information about the history and cultural importance of lighthouses all around the Chesapeake Bay.

Amount Funded: $107,000.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
