Open House from Picnic Area236 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.)

1930 Close Up with Windmill213 viewsThis picture is taken from the south side looking north with the windmill visible in the middle of the picture. The lighthouse is in great shape at this time since it was remodelled in the late 1920s.
FogBellTower2.jpg
Fog Bell Tower at CBMM100 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.

View from a Jetty243 viewsThere is one jetty in the fishing area which remains as of 1999 on the Chesapeake Bay side. This is a great view of the Lighthouse. Photographs taken by psychic investigators revealed the figure of a man sitting near this jetty; the apparition was visible to the human eye. This area is where the prison hospital was located.
