The Erie Playhouse, in cooperation with the Erie Port Authority, will conduct tours of the historic Erie Land Lighthouse August 27 and 28, and September 3, 4 and 5 from 12 noon to 5 p.m.
The lighthouse, also referred to as the Old Presque Isle Lighthouse, was constructed in 1818 and is considered one of the first built on the Great Lakes. Tours – the first regularly scheduled tours open to the public – will be conducted by authentically costumed Erie Playhouse actors. Groups of 12 will be guided up the lighthouse’s 59 stairs to view Erie harbor and the surrounding area. While there, visitors are encouraged to enjoy the historic renderings and photographs, theatrical reenactments, and the nearby playground.
Tickets are $5 per person. Proceeds benefit the Erie Playhouse Youtheatre program.
