Point Lookout by Boat424 viewsPoint Lookout looks like an island. The land around the lighthosue had more vegetation (trees) back in 1979. The turbulent waters at the confluence of the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River confirm the need for a lighthouse to warn mariners.

447 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.

Exterior of Lighthouse, Looking South399 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. The album was donated to St. Mary’s College of Maryland Archives by Julia Best's great-niece, Virginia Arndt, of Solomons.Mar 29, 2012

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 CBMM380 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
