Brief Description: Concord Point lighthouse, constructed in 1827, sits adjacent to the Susquehanna River and protected the large volume of commercial river traffic from the shoals and currents of the Susquehanna Flats. The light is the oldest continuously operated lighthouse in the State of Maryland.

Today, the site also affords unparalleled views of the scenic upper Bay region encompassing dramatic topography, wildlife and extensive recreational activity. The lighthouse park is within a designated historic district and adjacent to the Havre de Grace river promenade and so enjoys a strong pedestrian link to several other Gateway sites and regional points of interest.
