SUPPORT #GIVINGTUESDAY ON NOVEMBER 29, 2106
The Drum Point Lighthouse needs YOU!

#GIVINGTUESDAY is a global movement engaging thousands of organizations worldwide when charities, families, businesses, community centers and students all around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and to give.
Our beacon on the Bay, the Drum Point Lighthouse is Southern Maryland’s most popular tourist attraction. It needs your help please as major repairs are necessary to keep this light shining! Drum Point is a cottage style screwpile lighthouse and one of Maryland’s oldest dating back to 1883. It’s the only furnished lighthouse of this kind on the Bay.
