Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society (PLLPS), Inc.
June 27, 2009
Volunteers from the Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society spent a another very productive workday moving forward with maintaining the lighthouse. We removed trees from the coal and buoy shed area, where the fog bell tower was once located. We also worked on the flag pole to ensure that we would be able to raise the flag at our July Open House Event. The painting continued on the front porch, which was in desperate need of a few good coats of white paint. We also removed garbage from the basement area. The remains of a 40 year old chair were hauled off, along with numerous other small items that retain moisture which would pose long term problems for the historic structure.

The tree stands as an odd placeholder for the bell tower which now resides in St. Michaels Maryland. PLLPS hopes to have the belltower returned to the Point Lookout Lighthouse Complex in the near future
