Constructed in 1883 at Drum Point to mark the entrance to the Patuxent River, this screwpile, cottage-type light is one of the only three remaining from forty-five that once served the Chesapeake Bay at the beginning of the twentieth century. Decommissioned in 1962, the lighthouse fell victim to vandals until moved to its present site in 1975. Beautifully restored, complete with furnishings of the early twentieth century, it has become the waterfront's main attraction.
