Owls Head Lighthouse
The Owls Head Light Station’s tower was constructed in 1825 and rebuilt in 1852. It stands atop a steep rise near Rockland Harbor, 100 feet above the water. The keeper’s house, built in the 1850s, is down a steep set of stairs from the light.
Nothing says Maine like a visit to one of our iconic lighthouses. The lighthouses in Maine are some of the best in the country. With more than 60 options lighting up the coastline, you could plan a whole trip around these historically significant and visually arresting Maine beacons.
Portland Head Light was built in 1791. You can visit the museum in the former keeper’s house, which sits in Fort Williams Park, off Shore Road in Cape Elizabeth. Portland Head has a white conical tower and a Victorian keeper’s house with a red roof and eyebrow eves on the porch.
The Spark Plug
Goose Rocks Lighthouse is otherwise known as the “Spark Plug.” Composed of as many as 200 islands, Penobscot Bay has the largest concentration of lighthouses in Maine. It is also recognized as one of the best cruising destinations in the world.
