DescriptionPiney Point Lighthouse stands along the banks of the Potomac River near the town of Piney Point. It has been known as the "Lighthouse of Presidents" since a number of former presidents have chosen to spend time in the area in the summers in the past.
The lighthouse is now a museum and is open for visitors.
