Watch the video below for a sneak peak of what you will find when you visit
The Marblehead Lighthouse Historical Society is a non-profit organization formed to establish a museum for the preservation of the history of this unique village on the shores of Lake Erie and Sandusky Bay, with a special interest in its historic Marblehead Lighthouse. We work in cooperation with and provide support for the Marblehead Lighthouse State Park, owned and operated by the State of Ohio.
The Lighthouse tours are offered daily (weather permitting) from noon to 3:40 p.m. Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.
The construction of a replica of the 1876 U.S. Lifesaving Station was completed in 2016.
The present Keeper’s House was constructed in 1880 and was home to a number of keepers and their families.
The Marblehead Lighthouse State Park, with the help of the Historical Society, is currently selling commemorative bricks for the brick pathway.
The Lighthouse and Museums are now closed until May, except for Lighthouse Festival day
Join the Marblehead Lighthouse Historical Society as a member or a volunteer.
