I love lighthouses. I have traveled many places and taken many pictures of lightouses. Probably because I was raised in a small city that took pride in its restored lighthouse, I still love lighthouses to this day. The lighthouse on St. Clement's Island is a restoration of the original lighthouse that was destroyed by fire in the 1950's. The new lighthouse has been restored as an exact replica using many of the same materials used for the original lighthouse. It is maintained by a group of volunteers from the local area. The lighthouse is open to the public. The views of the Potomac River from the top are breathtaking.

The lighthouse with the 40 ft. cross behind it are perfect photo opportunities for history and lighthouse buffs.
