Maine Lighthouses

We visited several lighthouses in Maine in July 2002.

Dice Head Lighthouse

The Dice Head Lighthouse is near Orland ME, on the tip of the peninsula that forms the mouth of the Penobscot River.  The keeper's house is a private residence, but you can access the grounds by a public path that leads to the light.

Fort Point Lighthouse

The Fort Point Lighthouse is within a couple of miles of Highway 1 near the city of Stockton Springs and the mouth of the Penobscot River.  It has easy access but tours were only available by appointment when we were there.

Marshall Point Lighthouse

The Marshall Point lighthouse is just off Highway 1 near Port Clyde.  This is the lighthouse that Forrest Gump ran to one of the times he was running back and forth across the United States.  It is easily accessible by car, but Forrest ran to it.

Owls Head Lighthouse

The Owls Head lighthouse is also near Rockland ME.  You can drive quite close to it and then walk the wooden stairs to it.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is south of the community of Damariscotta, on a penisula separating Johns Bay and Muscongus Bay.  There is a museum there and the lighthouse is open occasionally.

Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse

The Rockland Breakwater light is located just outside of Rockland ME.  You can drive to within a mile of it and park in a parking lot.  Then you walk across the breakwater to reach the light.
