Jacobson Descendents Visit the Lighthouse

Judy and Jenny are descendents of keeper Thomas Jacobson, who served as keeper of Point Lookout Lighthouse from May 1, 1912 until August 30, 1917. Judy is Mr. Jacobson's great granddaughter; Jenny is his great-great granddaughter, and Judy's daughter. Lighthouse historian Robert Hall took the family on a tour of the lighthouse, pointing out the differences between how the structure looked during Mr. Jacobson's five year tenure and the way that it looks today. The trio visited the park in the fall of last year and were almost stranded because of the high winds and flooding caused by a Nor'easter. Pictured: Jenny and Judy Dunn, top row; Erika van der Zon second row.
