Inscription
Protecting ships from treacherous waters has been a necessity since ancient times when bonfires and strategically placed cottage lanterns warned seamen of dangers in fog and darkness. Lighthouses of the Chesapeake and Potomac River waterways are variations of three basic styles: detached conical towers, dwellings with lantern-like cupolas built on shore line and screw-pile lighthouses secured to the floors of the waterways replacing some of the early lightships. The Piney Point Lighthouse is a conical type and stands approximately 30 feet from the keepers house.
