116 - Lighthouses on the Coast of Maine
(PDF with color photos)

Photograph America Newsletter on Lighthouses on the Coast of Maine
 
Sixty-seven lighthouses still perch high on the rocky cliffs of Maine. Some of these lighthouses were built more than two hundred years ago to help sailors navigate their way through storms, fog, and dark of night. These beacons saved wooden merchant vessels sailing dangerous courses through narrow and shallow channels filled with countless hazards.

Maine's lighthouses were a part of our country's history at a time when we were defending our shores, as far back as the Revolutionary war. Some were damaged by war and many were destroyed by the violence of nature. Light keepers risked their own lives to keep their lamps burning. Many of the still-existing lighthouses on the coast of Maine sit offshore, at the eastern tip of remote islands. A proud and dramatic beauty can be seen in these structures and their rugged environments. For this newsletter, I selected lighthouses that are easily accessible by car or that can be photographed with a telephoto lens from the mainland.
