View from a Boat710 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.

Point Lookout Lighthouse, c. 1979711 viewsThe Lighthouse looks very regal in this photograph. The last major rennovation occurred 13 years earlier in 1966, when the exterior was sandblasted.

Aerial View, pre-1927 remodel821 viewsAerial view of the lighthouse, from the south. The front of the picture says "Filed June 28, 1928". However, close inspection of the lighthouse reveals that this picture was taken PRIOR to the remodel in 1927; the summer kitchen/bedroom wing on the Potomac side of the house is visible.

Exterior of Lighthouse, Looking South829 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

Fog Bell Tower at CBMM687 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
