Sherman Memorial Lighthouse

The 75-foot tall structure gives a breathtaking scenic view of the Allegheny River, one of the two National Wild and Scenic Rivers of the PA Great Outdoors. Climbing the spiral staircase, you will witness the memorabilia of the Sherman family along with lighthouse collectibles.

There is a free video of the lighthouse construction shown continuously in an adjacent, handicap accessible building for anyone unwilling or unable to climb the 76 stairs.

Self-guided tours of the gorgeous six-story tower are given only three times a year for fundraising events benefiting the Tionesta Lions' Club community projects.
