View from a Boat369 viewsThis is a great view and you can clearly see the two buoy depot buildings which the Navy used at that time as part of the Radar Tracking Facility. The large pole (tower) was used by ospreys to build a nest when Laura Berg lived there. In his capacity as Department of Natural Resources Police Officer, Erik had a unique opportunity to photograph the lighthouse from this angle.

PicnicAreaView.jpg
Open House from Picnic Area383 viewsA view of the lighthouse from the north near the picnic area. Note the people fishing on the left. The remains of the wharf can be seen in the right hand side of the picture. People are lined up to tour the lighthouse. The tower with the big ball on top is the Navy Tracking Facility. The tent used by the Open House is visible in the middle of the picture; just to the left of the tent is the old smoke house, built during William Yeatman's time. (Some sources incorrectly identify the smoke house as a photo gallery from the days when the Civil War Prison camp was in operation just outside the lighthouse.)

View of the Coal and Buoy Sheds from the Lighthouse Roof277 viewsLooking south from the roof of the lighthouse, c. 1925. Note the fog bell tower in the center of the picture(attached to coal shed). The photos are part of a larger photo album documenting a 1925 trip to southern Maryland by Julia Dent Best and Alfred Sellman Best. Julia Best was a 1919 graduate of what was then called St. Mary's Female Seminary. The album was donated to St. Mary’s College of Maryland Archives by Julia Best's great-niece, Virginia Arndt, of Solomons.

520 viewsThe interior walls are in bad shape. Some of the damage has been caused by vandals, however, other areas were opened up as part of a structural evaluation prior to the 2002 rennovation. The brick in the old part of the lighthouse is 14" thick.

Exterior of Lighthouse, Looking South279 viewsThis photograph is a rare find and shows the lighthouse in 1927, just 2 years before the 1927 remodel. The photos are part of a larger photo album documenting a 1925 trip to southern Maryland by Julia Dent Best and Alfred Sellman Best. Julia Best was a 1919 graduate of what was then called St. Mary's Female Seminary.

Fog Bell Tower at CBMM302 viewsAnother view of the fog bell tower. Note that the fourth side of the lighthouse has been refinished with wood planking since the structure used to be attached to the coal shed at the Point Lookout Lighthouse Complex. The bell was cast in 1857 by the Meneely Company in New York. Fun fact: the lumber was pre-cut and installed on site, each piece is numbered to allow for simple construction onsite.Oct 16, 2010

Fog Bell Tower at CBMM276 viewsThis is the fog bell tower as it stands at CBMM in St Michaels, Maryland. The Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society (PLLPS), Inc. is working to return this wonderful piece of history to Point Lookout. (See www.PLLPS.org for the latest info). As of 2010, the fog bell tower is owned by the Navy and on loan to CBMM. Oct 16, 2010
