For a wonderful open house weekend in honor of National Lighthouse Day, which is formally observed every August 7th, head to Piney Point. Take tours of the gardens, lighthouse tower, museum, and Potomac River Maritime Exhibit.

The official day as designated by Congress, August 7, 1989, is the anniversary of the signing of the August 7, 1789, Congressional Act “for the establishment and support of lighthouses, beacons, buoys, and public piers” and the date of the first commissioned Federal lighthouse.

The keeper’s quarters and lighthouse will offer special tours featuring interpreters who depict Lightkeeper Yeatman and his wife, who will tell visitors more about life at the lighthouse.
