View from a Boat413 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.

Aerial View, pre-1927 remodel521 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.

Fog Bell Tower at CBMM355 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
