Jones Point Lighthouse


Jones Point Lighthouse
Originally uploaded by etacar11

Jones Point Lighthouse, in Alexandria, VA. Almost right under the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. My mother and I visited it on the 4th of July.

I’ve had a fascination with lighthouses for a while now and I took advantage of the day off to see this local one.

It’s owned by the Daughters of the American Revolution and the building is not open to the public. Sadly. Maybe they will restore it someday. But it was nice to be able to walk around it.

Located on the grounds of the lighthouse is one of the boundary stones for the original boundries of the District of Columbia. You could only see it from above, though a hole in the seawall. Best viewed from the water, I guess.
