Freshwater Storage Container, Attic862 viewsThis storage container was used by the lighthouse keepers to gather and store fresh water for drinking purposes. Vandals have removed the copper lining which was still intact as recently as 1981. The wood housing is still in excellent shape.

Towerhallway.jpg
861 viewsBoth the North and South sides of the Lighthouse have private entrances to the Tower. The entrance to the tower opens into a steep spiral staircase with small steps; the staircase ends at a landing where the door to the attic is located. To reach the light, you must then climb a ladder leading to a narrow hatch. Once through the hatch, you are officially in the Lighthouse Cupola/Tower! During Hans Holzer's visit, one of the mediums got an impression that a man had been murdered in the entrance to the tower. A voice recorded here said in a British accent, "Hold your tongue, Handsome (or Hanson)".

Aerial View (closeup), pre-1927 remodel849 viewsAerial view closeup of the lighthouse, from the south. 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. Also notice the two chimneys on opposite ends of what is the present day first floor living rooms. A building exists in the upper right hand corner of the picture.
