Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society (PLLPS), Inc.



About Us


The Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society, Inc. was formed in August, 2006 to assist with the restoration of the Point Lookout Lighthouse Complex, located in Scotland, Maryland, to its former glory, circa 1927.  The lighthouse was under Navy control until February 2006, when a formal agreement was signed to transfer ownership to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.  The buoy and coal sheds, located to the south of the lighthouse, are also included in the agreement, however, the sheds will remain secured and off limits to the public until the structures can be made safe for visitors. The PLLPS, Inc. was formed to raise funds and to provide volunteers to restore the interior of the lighthouse and to provide educational displays to document the rich history of the lighthouse. PLLPS is the officially sanctioned "Friends of" group for the Point Lookout Lighthouse, and works in conjunction with the owners and caretakers of the lighthouse, the Point Lookout State Park and the Department of Natural Resources. Please note that the lighthouse is part of a Maryland State Park which charges entrance fees, which vary throughout the year; these fees help to support the park's operation. For details about the fees or for additional information about the Point Lookout State Park, please visit their website:
