Community of Drum Point

An economic boom hit and the joys of leisure time and water recreation became more popular drawing in more visitors. As times changed and Southern Maryland grew, so did the Drum Point community, becoming a destination and week-end resort. Drum Point as well as other communities in Southern Maryland expanded way beyond their founder's original dreams and became a year round full time place to live.

Drum Point Lighthouse dominates the Solomon's Island Maryland museum's waterfront. This screwpile, cottage-type light is only one of three remaining from forty-five that once served the Chesapeake Bay at the beginning of the twentieth century. Decommissioned in 1962 from Drum Point, the lighthouse fell victim to vandals until moved to its present site in 1975. Beautifully restored, complete with furnishings of the early twentieth century, it has become the waterfront's main attraction and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
