The Daughters of the American Revolution have approved my website with slight revisions. I will be adding more to it as time allows. Jones Point Lighthouse is one of the few river lighthouses still standing. It is located in Alexandria, Virginia across the river from Washington D.C. If you visit please leave feedback. Thanks. The site is: http://jonespoint.garoux.net/

Grover, they have try to keep the site open during the whole period, from time to time it is closed for a day or so. I have a link to the Woodrow Wilson Bridge website that includes updates. They should be done with the project by next year. Their site is: http://www.wilsonbridge.com/

Zack, the overview page has one picture of the inside. I was hoping to get some additonal shots the last time up there, but could not get in due to the bridge construction at the time. But the inside needs everything, additional structural supports, dry wall or plaster, fire places rebuilt, etc..

Website now has "Recent History 2006 to present". See the 2 lens that Jones Point has. Don't believe either was in that lighthouse, however, they are in fairly good shape and the Chesapeake Chapter of the United States Lighthouse Society will be cleaning them up and making small repairs.

Recent History updated with restored lenses pictured. Lenses are at the Lyceum Museum in Alexandria, Virginia till Feb. 2009. They will most likely get a more permanent location after that.
