Concord Lighthouse & Keepers House

Hometown, Havre de Grace Md. Our Concord Point Lighthouse. Built in 1827 and first manned by local hero John  O'Neil.  Mr O'Neil was the last defender of Concord Point . On May 3rd 1813 the British came to pilfer and burned the town. They were successful. The out cry was far and loud. Baltimore was determined to defeat the British when their turn came. Ever hear of the Star Spangled Banner song?  Havre de Grace was later over voted by one (ONE!) in congress to become the the nations capital. We here are SO glad that didn't happen.

To tie in my soaps, I created the soap called "Concord Point" with the story in mind. It's colors remind me of the water and sand. The fragrance is from Bramble Berry, called "Yacht Club".   See the soap HERE.
