Points of interest include:
Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse
Constructed in the mid-1850s, Seven Foot Knoll is the state’s oldest screw-pile lighthouse. It was built to aid navigation on the Chesapeake Bay and was moved to its present location in 1989. The lighthouse was run by the keepers of the U.S. Lighthouse Service. Each evening, they lit the beacon lamp and thoroughly cleaned it and the lens every morning.
Star-Spangled Banner Flag House
Step inside the Star-Spangled Flag House to learn about the creation of the American flag. Built in 1793, the house is where Mary Pickersgill sewed the garrison flag that Francis Scott Key saw flying over Fort McHenry. It inspired him to write our national anthem. Today, the home features hands-on exhibits and early 19th-century objects that belonged to the Pickersgill family.
American Visionary Museum
Called one of Baltimore’s most unique museums, the American Visionary Museum features over 4,000 works of eclectic art. It is found inside three historic buildings and is popular among locals and visitors alike. One of the highlights includes DeVon Smith’s World’s First Family of Robots. He became a world-famous hitchhiker after World War II. After his wandering days were over, Devon made a living by selling and trading junk. He created the robots using oscillating fans and recycled materials such as TV antennas and parts from old hair dryers.
