While their navigational function has diminished, the grandeur and the mystery of lighthouses remain. Many incredible tales unfolded right here under the watchful beacon of the Turkey Point Lighthouse stories of heroism, daunting challenges, and even tragedy. This lighthouse has been part of Chesapeake Bay history for generations, safeguarding people who have lived, worked and traveled there.
The stories and traditions of the Chesapeake live on today. By protecting the health of the Bay, we preserve our region's rich heritage-one that is embodied in the Turkey Point Lighthouse.
