Keep the Light Shining!

We realize 2020 is a difficult, unprecedented time. It brings challenges for the Presque Isle Lighthouse. We have a season with NO visitors, and a season with ongoing expenses. It is for this reason that we are offering, for a limited time, Commemorative SUMMER 2020 T-shirts as a fundraiser.

These Commemorative shirts can be ordered from July 25 through August 21. All orders will be placed and finalized at the END of this 30 day period, and will be mailed out approximately 2 weeks from the end date. Curbside pick up will also be available, and dates and times for pick up will be posted.

Please use the Buy Now button above to place an order or to donate. Thank you for your ongoing support!.

Presque Isle Lighthouse

One of Erie’s most treasured historic sites, is normally open to visitors during the summer season and continues to serve as a working aid to navigation. The lighthouse is located on the north shore of Presque Isle State Park, in Erie, Pennsylvania, at Leslie Beach near Beach 9.

Admission and Hours

The Presque Isle Lighthouse will be closed to Visitors until further notice due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. The lighthouse, however, will remain an active aid to navigation. Please check back for future updates.
