History

Scotland MD is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Point Lookout State Park & Lighthouse. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

THE HISTORY

This park is located on the peninsula between the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River in St. Mary's County. During the Civil War, it was a prison camp that held as many as 52,264 Confederate soldiers. The Point Lookout Lighthouse began operation in 1830.

THE HAUNTINGS

Once the Navy and subsequently the State of Maryland took possession of the lighthouse and rehabilitated it, tenants of the lighthouse began reporting their experiences of unexplained voices, sightings, and other phenomena. In 1980, Dr. Hans Holzer and his team from New York were invited to do the first paranormal investigation at the lighthouse.


Reports of activity include someone snoring in the kitchen, voices heard outside and inside the lighthouse and someone walking up and down the hallway and stairs.
