Chesapeake Babe features New Point Comfort Lighthouse in New Point, Virginia. The lighthouse stands on a small island in the Chesapeake Bay at the southeastern end of Mathews County. Construction for the eight-sided structure occurred between 1801-1804. In April 1976, the county acquired the property from the federal government, and restoration efforts have been made by local organizations and volunteers. Pat has also painted this lighthouse in Guiding Light and New Point Visitors.
