Point Lookout Lighthouse Open House

(John Deiner)
Thursday, April 1, 2010

See for yourself if there's spooky activity afoot at this nearly 200-year-old lighthouse in St. Mary's County. Nestled at the southernmost edge of Point Lookout State Park, it is said to play host to paranormal activity. This open house is the first of the year, and guides will be available to answer questions about the lighthouse's history. The structure is open the first Saturday of each month from April through November.
