National Lighthouse Day at the Cape Henry Lighthouse

Aug 7, 2023

10:00 am — 5:00 pm

On August 7, 1789, the bill was signed to build the Cape Henry Lighthouse. We want you to come celebrate this National Lighthouse Day with us in a big way! Climb the Old and New Cape Henry Lighthouses (a rare opportunity), join the Fort Story Fire Department and Stewie the Seaturtle in participating in crafts and activities and learn more about maritime life from nearby museums. Enjoy some delicious lunch from the Flying Pig Food Truck and lemonade from the Fort Story Girl Scouts. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Our site is on an active military base, so be sure to check our Cape Henry webpage for the details on how to visit.
