Grants Awarded - Improving Access to and Preserving Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse

Improving Access to and Preserving Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse

block Annapolis Maritime Museum

Located at the mouth of the South River in Annapolis, the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse is one of the few surviving screw-pile lighthouses on the East Coast still in use by the U.S. Coast Guard. In partnership with the Annapolis Maritime Museum, the US Lighthouse Society is preparing Thomas Point for boat tours. This project will enhance safe public access to the site by constructing a new, expanded docking facility. In addition, the grant supports efforts to give visitors a more engaging and historically accurate experience through restoring a modern kitchen and other interior space to historic conditions and preserving historic windows. Finally, new enclosures will be installed to simultaneously protect and display operational aid-to-navigation equipment.

Amount Funded: $72,385.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
