Welcome to the re-designed website! This website has been in existence since 1998 and serves to document the history and lore of the Point Lookout Lighthouse, located in Scotland, Maryland on the southernmost tip of Maryland's western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. was created to pull together as much information as possible about the lighthouse, including history, sights, sounds and ghost lore. The web site continues to evolve as newer (and perhaps older!) information is discovered about the lighthouse. I hope you enjoy the site and come back often to check for updates. Also, if you have any information such as pictures, stories, recorded sounds that you would like to share, please email:




Please bear with me as I work to add all of the captions and additional information about the pictures into the new picture viewing application (Coppermine). Coppermine offers a number of nice features such as: visitors can rate the pictures, leave comments and even send email postcards.
