Pemaquid Point Light - Bristol, Maine

The photo above shows the Pemaquid Point Light in Bristol, Maine, long before the restoration work done last year. Restored and re-dedicated, the lighthouse is ready to greet a new host of visitors this season.

A survivor of mid-19th century gales and shipwrecks, even of unromantic progress when it became Maine’s first automated lighthouse in 1934, the lighthouse still stands on its sheet of granite sloping to the sea. The Town of Bristol owns the lighthouse, and there is a small museum on site. The keeper’s quarters are available for weekly rental, if you’ve ever wanted to stay in a lighthouse.
