BLACKISTONE LIGHTHOUSE

This lighthouse is similar in construction to the Point Lookout Lighthouse and
was built in 1851. It stood on St. Clement's Island (also known as Blackistone
Island) until it burned in 1956. It has since been reconstructed. Accessible by
water only. A seasonal water taxi runs from the nearby St. Clement's Island
Museum. Occasional tours. (See Museums and Historic Sites listing.)

From the oldest on the Potomac to one of the most
haunted in America, St. Mary's County has great
lighthouses-each with its own unique story.
