On the National and State Register of Historic Places
Our National Lighthouse Day Celebration
was a Great Success!
Young local resident Arthur Swierczynski, being rewarded for noticing the light was out and urged his mother to report it. The light was repaired a short time later. Arthur was made an honorary member of Coast Guard Aids to Navigation Team Philadelphia and the Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse Society. Congratulations Arthur!
“National Lighthouse Day” festivities included an opportunity to climb the lighthouse and several hundred visitors did just that!
