Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

Pemaquid Point Light was built in 1827. The station sits on a sloping, rocky promontory with ridges carved out by the sea. The tower's original Fresnel lens is still in use. You can visit the keeper's house, which now hosts a Fishermen's Museum. The exhibits include equipment, photos and artifacts from the fishing and lobstering industries as well as the lighthouse service. The tower and outbuildings are open daily. In 2003, this light became the first lighthouse to appear on American currency, when its image was used for the official Maine quarter. For more information about the lighthouse, the museum and the surrounding park, contact the Town of Bristol.
