LightHouse Loves U

Today on National LightHouse Day and every other day, too.

On this day in 1789, the United States Congress approved an Act “for the establishment and support of lighthouses, beacons, buoys, and public piers.” This piece of legislation commissioned the first Federal lighthouse, which was constructed at the entrance of Chesapeake Bay. Two hundred years later, Congress designated August 7th as National Lighthouse Day to commemorate this important moment in history and to celebrate these beautiful structures.

For centuries, lighthouses have served as beacons of light, guiding ships safely to harbor through storms, fog, or dark of night.

 

To celebrate National Lighthouse Day, visit a local lighthouse near you, stop in to see us at LightHouse Healthcare, or help someone shine today.
