In this book, each of Maine’s 65 existing lighthouses are scrutinized, using information obtained from the U.S. Coast Guard, the National Register of Historic Places, from the current caretakers of these structures, and, finally, from personal observation. Whether you are a casual fan of Maine lighthouses, or a fervent enthusiast, this book should be both enjoyable and informative. Within the pages, you’ll discover how these structures were built with the design details that made each one unique. You’ll also discover the best viewing spots for each lighthouse, and the level of accessibility (or inaccessibility) that each one offers. You might even find some anecdotes that have been passed down over generations to help you understand what life was like at these structures during the 1800s.
