Lighthouse Photo Galleries


Lighthouses are specialized architectural structures.  As they dot the Maine coast, they are impressive as much for their settings as for their designs, of which there are many variations. Many are recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. To see names and locations, hover over an image with your mouse or click the image to enlarge.
