Northside.jpg
601 viewsYou can clearly see the entrance to the basement and the flag pole in the yard. This flag pole was used for boat warning flags during heavy winds when Laura Berg lived in the lighthouse. This side is photographed most often because the public has access to this view, and this is the side you first see when driving toward the Lighthouse.

Wooden Beams in Lighthouse Attic761 viewsSeveral dormer windows gave this room some natural light. This is a typical-looking attic filled with wires, debris and insulation. Several people have reported finding items in the attic - one reportedly found a Lighthouse Keepers hat. At the time this picture was taken, racoons had taken residence in the attic and at times and the stench of animal waste would be overpowering. The most recent remodel removed the waste and has restricted access to the animals.

Jacobson Descendants Visit the Lighthouse137 viewsJudy and Jenny are descendants 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.
