trip of LEDGELIGHT House Tour August 14th

Your entire excursion will take 2 1/2 hours- Our tour time is 4:30– 7 pm. Cost is $55/resident. This trip is open to anyone 18 and older.

Step on board the comfortable Project O boat, and take a pleasant 10 -15 minute narrated ride to Ledge Light at the mouth of the Thames River.

The lighthouse is offshore, surrounded by water on all four sides. Access does require some degree of mobility, as you step off the boat onto the landing ledge and climb up a stairway to the entrance to the lighthouse.Once inside, LLF volunteer tour guides will be on hand to answer questions as you explore rooms filled with informational and historical exhibit panels and photographs.There’s an air conditioned theater where you will watch a compelling orientation film. You will be free to wander the rooms of the lighthouse, including the light tower at the top, dreaming of what life was like back in the day when keepers lived their secluded lives in the middle of the sea. There’s a room furnished as it would have been when the keepers were there.
Maybe you’ll even run into Ernie, the resident ghost! There are benches outside circling the perimeter where you can sit and enjoy the best views in town while waiting for the boat to return you to shore.
