Lighthouse Open House

NEW CASTLE —Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation, will host an open house at Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in New Castle, on Sun., July 14, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. The open houses will continue every Sunday through Columbus Day weekend in October.

No reservations are needed; the guided tours are on a first come, first served basis. Children must be at least 42 inches tall to climb to the top, and adults are not permitted to carry children up the stairs.

Visitors are invited to climb to the lantern room to enjoy the magnificent view at the mouth of the Piscataqua River and to see the nineteenth century lens up close. Volunteers will tell visitors about the history of the light station, and there will be souvenirs for sale.

There are 44 stairs and a seven-rung ladder to the lantern room. Flat shoes (not sandals or flip-flops) are strongly recommended to climb to the top.

The admission to climb the lighthouse is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for children 12 and under. Visitors should park outside the gate to Coast Guard Station Portsmouth Harbor and walk to the lighthouse.
