Located in the northern corner of Ohio, on the shore of our beautiful Lake Erie sits Conneaut’s Historic Lighthouse. Originally built in 1835, this localized landmark once acted as the main marker for one of America’s biggest ports in the 1900′s. The lighthouse itself has been rebuilt many times over the years, dating back to the 1890′s when its first reconstruction occurred.

As one of the world’s biggest harbors that transports grains and other goods, this historic lighthouse guided the way for all ships and helped develop and grow the economy in Conneaut. The lighthouse structure has changed over the years, but the corner spot in the shore will always be recognized as the spot for our beautiful lighthouse.

    We are planning a mini-family reunion in Conneaut, Ohio, May 3-5, 2013. Our grandparents and fathers were all born in Conneaut. Any chance that we would be able to tour the lighthouse during that weekend?

    To the best of my knowledge, the lighthouse is not available for tours. The video of the inside of the lighthouse on this website was made before the lighthouse was sold to a private owner.
