Point Lookout Lighthouse, prior to 2002 renovations778 viewsThe lighthouse trimmed in red. The 2002 remodel changed the color of the lighthouse to tan, as it would have appeared in 1927.
733 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.

Open House 2001757 viewsWaiting line to enter the lighthouse during Open House 2001. More than 1400 people lined up to take a tour of the lighthouse. People showed up from near and far to tour the lighthouse on the one day a year that it is open to the public. The day was bright and sunny.
Open House from Picnic Area1162 viewsA view of the lighthouse from the north near the picnic area. Note the people fishing on the left. The remains of the wharf can be seen in the right hand side of the picture. People are lined up to tour the lighthouse. The tower with the big ball on top is the Navy Tracking Facility. The tent used by the Open House is visible in the middle of the picture; just to the left of the tent is the old smoke house, built during William Yeatman's time. (Some sources incorrectly identify the smoke house as a photo gallery from the days when the Civil War Prison camp was in operation just outside the lighthouse.)
