SUMMER PAINT DAYS!  No crowds - No ticks!  

An exceptional opportunity for En-Plein-Air artists to capture the beauty at Bakers Island Light Station.


Spend 5 hours at beautiful Bakers Island Light Station, 10 acres on the north end of Bakers Island, Salem, MA! You can paint the historic buildings, the natural landscape along the trails, the magnificent rocky shoreline and the seascapes with the Misery Islands and the Beverly-Manchester coast. Only the summer cottage colony is private and off limits. The trip is $48 per person, or if your association wants to charter our boat for your group, there is a flat fee of $500 for up to 18 passengers ($28/p).

Adventure aboard Essex Heritage’s landing craft Naumkeag leaving from the Salem Ferry dock, Blaney Street, Salem, MA.

  • Trip takes approximately 25 minutes each way.

Essex Heritage

The Essex National Heritage Area, established by an act of the U.S. Congress in 1996, covers the 500 square mile region north of Boston (Essex County) and encompasses thousands of historic, cultural and natural places that were crucial in shaping our nation’s heritage.  

The Essex National Heritage Commission (Essex Heritage) is the nonprofit management organization for the Area and rallies our community around saving its unique character.  We are the only organization that connects the people who live in the 34 cities and towns within our county!  We do this to achieve our mission “to preserve and enhance the historic, cultural and natural resources of Essex County.”
