Got to see a couple lighthouses I hadn’t seen before this last trip to Maine. I’ll do individual posts so as not to overload you with photos!
This light is small, but a gorgeous setting and lots of area to climb around on the rocks along the shore. There is a nice little museum attached and a small art gallery also. The grounds and the light keepers house are owned by the town of Bristol. A small apartment in the light keeper’s house is available for weekly rental! The tower is licensed to the American Lighthouse Association. The first light was built in 1827 but its poor construction necessitated a new light be built anti was completed in 1835. This was the first light in Maine to be automated in 1934.
There is a gift shop and restaurant next door to the lighthouse, but I’d suggest packing a picnic lunch. There’s a lovely picnic area. Spend the day sitting in the sun on the rocks reading or exploring all the little tidal pools in the rocks for life. There was an old lobstermen running the museum, he was so interesting to talk too! LOVED it here! Check out this live cam for Pemaquid Point!
Supper at Moody’s Diner on the way to Rockland next!
