Primary Lighthouses of the Boothbay Region

Burnt Island

Burnt Island

 The Burnt Island Lighthouse is a thirty-foot-high, white, conical tower made of brick and covered by rubblestone that guards the entrance to Boothbay Harbor. Its foundation is secured to the natural rock of the Island's southern shore. The base of the tower is fifteen feet in diameter with walls that are four feet thick. Its orginial structure was built sometime before 1857.

Cuckholds Light
Cuckholds Light
 One of the last lighthouses to be built along the Maine coast, the Cuckholds Light is located on a small island about a mile off the tip of Southport Island and marks the entrance to Boothbay Harbor. Initially, built in 1892 as a fog signal station and later modifed in 1902 with a oil-powered fog signal, it was finally retrofitted to a permanent lighthouse in 1907.

Doubling Point
Doubling Point
 Doubling Point is one of four lights located along the Kennebec River on Arrowsic Island that guided ships entering and leaving the Atlantic Ocean from Bath, Maine. It is the light closest to Bath, near the upper end of Fiddler Reach. The tower is currently owned by the Friends of Doubling Point Light, while the grounds and keeper's dwelling are privately owned.

Kennebec River Lights
Kennebec River
 The only range lights of Maine's 64 lighthouses the Kennebec River Lights, are among the very few wooden lighthouses in the country. Built in 1908, the range lights are twin framed and shingled octagonal buildings, set 235 yards apart. The lights are uniquely designed to guide travelers into the proper channel when the two lights are lined up.

Monhegan Island
Monhegan
 Monhegan Island has a long and rich history that goes back hundreds of years. The island's first lighthouse was built in 1824 and its current granite structure was erected in 1850 approximately 200 feet above sea level. A second-order fresnel originally shone from its lantern, but was eventually replaced in 1959 with a revolving DCB-36 beacon.

Pemaquid
Pemaquid
 Although only 38 feet tall, the light at Pemaquid is situated on a steep rock ledge, thus giving the light a 79 foot focal plane. Originally built in 1827 at a cost of $2,800 faulty construction led to a quick deterioration of the tower, which was rebuilt with double walls in 1835. Pemaquid's fourth-order fresnel is visible for 14 miles.

Ram Island Light
Ram Island
 Ram Island Light, originally built in 1883, is located on Ram Island, which is the east side of Boothbay Harbor. In 1985 the keeper's house and buildings were taken over by the Grand Banks Schooner Museum and the grounds are maintained by a part time caretaker.

Seguin Island
Seguin Island
 Extending six miles into the sea, Seguin Island was Maine's first island lighthouse. The first tower was built in 1797, a second tower in 1820, and the present granite tower in 1857. Because of its perch atop the island, the 53 foot tower is actually 180 feet above sea level. The original first-order fresnel lens is only one of two in New England.

Squirrel Point Light
Squirrel Point
 Built in 1898, Squirrel Point Light is located on southwestern corner of Arrowsic River. One of several medium sized lighthouses along the Kennebec River. Automated in 1979, the light has a fifth order fresnel lens.
