About Bakers Island Light Station
Bakers Island Light Station is located on Bakers Island in Salem Sound, a 60 acre island with a large summer colony. The 10 acre light station is located in the northwest quadrant of the island, and has been owned and operated by the federal government since 1798. The rest of the island is in private ownership including the Bakers Island Wharf. There is currently no public access to the island.
The deed to historic Bakers Island Light Station was transferred on August 27, 2014 from the United States government to Essex Heritage. We plan to preserve the masonry lighthouse, two keepers’ houses, lantern and oil buildings, and make them accessible to the public through escorted, guided boat tours leaving from Salem.
