Lighthouse Graphic

The Point Lookout Lighthouse 

The Point Lookout Lighthouse Complex was officially turned over to the State of Maryland in 2006, and is now part of the

Point Lookout State Park, located in Scotland, MD. At this time, only the lighthouse is open for public tours.

Open house events are held on the first Saturday of the month from April through November. Click here for calendar of events!

Two types of tours are offered: daytime tours and nighttime paranormal investigations. No reservations are required for the

daytime open house events. The paranormal nighttime tours are by reservation only. For further information or to register for an

upcoming paranormal event, please e-mail our Director of Paranormal Investigations, Kim Hammond at: Kim@easternparanormalresearch.com.


Paranormal investigation nights are tentatively scheduled and those dates as well as the complete calendar can be viewed at: Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society site.

All scheduled events are subject to cancellation for inclement weather; if in doubt, we recommend that you check the DNR website or call the park at (301)-872-5688 to confirm. Please

Note that fees are subject to change and are for admittance to the park. Admittance to the lighthouse is free, but donations to help with the preservation efforts are greatly appreciated.

There are additional areas north of the lighthouse that are of historical significance to the Civil War, such as Fort Lincoln and the site of the small pox hospital. The Department of Natural Resources

maintains a website with additional information about the park.


If you would like to become a member of the preservation society, visit the society's Web site to download a membership application. If you would just like to volunteer your time to help with the restoration

of the lighthouse or help with events, please e-mail Volunteer@pllps.org.   Join the PLLPS, Inc. Facebook group!

Sotterley Plantation

You Can Be the Best Face

at Sotterley Plantation!

If you have been considering ways to be of service in the community, then look no further! You can be the face of Sotterley Plantation to the public, welcoming and spending time with guests of this National Historic Landmark. Currently, both Museum Shop and Interpreter volunteers are needed, and these volunteers make a tremendous contribution to Sotterley by helping to keep our doors open to the public.

As a Museum Shop volunteer, yours is the first face visitors will see when they come to Sotterley Plantation. You will have the opportunity to sell our delightful wares and handle tour admissions, while making our visitors feel welcome. Interpreters will lead guided tours from room to room in the Mansion, the grand lady of the plantation, and tell the rich story of our over 300 year old history to guests.

To help us to bridge to gap between the past, the present, and the future, please contact Debbie Reetz, Volunteer Coordinator at the Sotterley office (301) 373 -2280 or via email: volunteer@sotterley.org.

A Call for Volunteers
