Grants Awarded - Point Lookout State Park Interpretive Waysides

Point Lookout State Park Interpretive Waysides

block Point Lookout State Park

Point Lookout State Park will develop a series of up to 14 outdoor interpretive exhibits (waysides) highlighting key sites and resources at the park. A number of exhibits will focus on Civil War era stories showing how the Chespeake Bay and the Potomac River played important roles in the war. Additional exhibits will highlight the Point Lookout lighthouse and the lives of lighthouse keepers. With nearly a half million visitors annually, Point Lookout provides a real Bay experience for many people. The new exhibits will greatly expand interpretive information for visitors and share more of the Bay story. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources will match the grant.

Amount Funded: $39,320.00

Start Date: 08/15/2003
