NATIONAL LIGHTHOUSE WEEKEND
National Lighthouse Day is recognized on August 7th
On August 7th, 1789 Congress approved an Act for the establishment and support of lighthouses, beacons, buoys and public piers. On August 7th, 1989, the 200th Anniversary of this act was celebrated with Congress passing a resolution to recognize August 7th, 1989 as National Lighthouse Day. National Lighthouse Day is now celebrated annually by Lighthouse Organizations throughout the country on August 7th, although Congress has not permanently designated this as an annual event.
Join The Old Baldy Foundation as we continue the celebration of the rich heritage of Lighthouses and their significant history.
