Fog Bell 1910725 viewsThe caption on the back of the picture is: "Point Lookout Fog Bell Tower, picture taken 1910. On left is Catherine Marie Ardseer [sic] (b. 5-9-1891) and on right is Rose Jeanette Ardseer [sic] (b. 4-22-1890); relatives of lighthouse keeper."

Note: The Ardeeser's were relatives of lighthouse keeper William Yeatman, who died in 1908. Perhaps the date of the picture is incorrect OR the young women returned to the lighthouse for a visit during William Moody's second term.

Wooden Beams in Lighthouse Attic875 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.

Fog Bell Tower at CBMM692 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
