Lorain Lighthouse

 it’s that time of year, backyard barbeques, visiting our parks, festivals and in general, getting outdoors. Shake those wintertime blues with a Lighthouse tour sponsored by The Lorain Port Authority

 Lorain’s Lighthouse was constructed in 1916-1917, and serves as a beacon for mariners from many parts of the world. Electricity was added in 1932, and was operated by the U.S. Coast Guard from 1939 until 1965 when it was decommisioned after the installation of the automated light. In 1990 it was purchased by The Port of Lorain Foundation, which took on an immense renovation project that continues today.

 The Lorain Port Authority will be sponsoring tours of Lorain’s masterpiece starting this month, with tentative dates as such:

May 24th

June 14th, 28th and 29th

July 5th, 19th and 20th

August 2nd, 16th and 30th

So, if you have friends or family visiting in the coming months, won’t you consider a tour of the port’s jewel for their pleasure?. It’s an experience we all can share in.
