North Point Lighthouse

The 74-foot tower of North Point Lighthouse stretches to meet the neighboring trees of Lake Park. Attached to it are two-and-a-half stories of wood-frame keeper's quarters that once housed historic figures such as Georgia Stebbins, keeper for thirty years.

Renovated in 2007, the bright, airy building now acts as home to artifacts and lighthouse-related curios, including an original 1928 Fresnel lens that helped guide seafaring vessels. Additionally, a Chadburn telegraph, recovered from a sunken ship, pays homage to the orders that went to and from the ship's bridge and engine rooms.

Guests can browse both the quarters and the lighthouse, and explore the site's more than 120 years of history by perusing the artwork and photographs displayed throughout the galleries. Dedicated volunteers are also on hand to dispense fascinating information and history, and to give limited guided tours that lead visitors to the top of the tower, where they can catch views of the surrounding park and lakefront.

Customer Reviews

Very informative tour with docents who know the subject well.
Giovanna W. · November 27, 2016
It was nice to not have to follow a tour guide if you didn't wont to. We did listen in on the history of the lighthouse. It was definitely worth it! The lighthouse was beautiful although the very top of the lighthouse (inside is not very big) and there are a lot of stairs to climb. But don't be discouraged the main floor of the home has plenty to see for those who can't climb and the outside view is beautiful!
