Dunkirk Lighthouse

Bob and I went for a motorcycle ride this past Sunday.  We rode from Warren, Pennsylvania, to Dunkirk, New York.  From Dunkirk we rode along Lake Erie to Barcelona Harbor.  From Barcelona we rode through Westfield and Jamestown before returning home.  I am breaking up our ride into three blog posts.  This blog post showcases  the historic Dunkirk Lighthouse.

The Dunkirk Lighthouse is located at Point Gratiot on Lake Erie. An admission fee of $8.00 provides a guided tour including a climb of the Lighthouse’s spiral stairs to the upper observation level, a walk through the restored lighthouse keepers home, the museum and a tour of the lighthouse grounds.  We chose to walk the grounds, unescorted, for which there was no admission fee charged.

The lighthouse and keeper’s house were built in 1875-1876. The lighthouse is 61 feet tall.

In addition to the lighthouse and the light keeper’s house we saw boats, anchors, a tank, a ship’s bell, and a bottle-necked beacon pier light as we walked the grounds.

This is the second time that we have visited this lighthouse.  I would like to go on a guided tour someday.

    Thanks for posting these wonderful pictures and the info. We are always looking for day trips in the area with our grandchildren. This would be really great.

    Great photos, Linda. You certainly saw it all –without having to pay the steep cost of admission… I would have done the same thing… I love lighthouses. Somehow, they just fascinate me…. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs,
    Betsy
