Did you know lighthouses have their own national holiday? An act of Congress in 1789 provided for the funding for support, maintenance and repairs necessary to “render navigation easy and safe” in every bay, inlet, harbor or port. The Chesapeake Bay is specifically mentioned in the act. August 7, 1989 was its 200th anniversary and thus was declared a date for continued commemoration.A slideshow of lighthouses (mostly near, some far, some haunted!) will be narrated by lighthouse expert, Bob Stevenson. You can use your new-found knowledge of lighthouse design types to make your own model of a screwpile, integrated, caisson, or tower with oatmeal boxes and other recyclables. Recommended for ages 5 and up
