Rich and I spotted this lovely lighthouse while on a nature cruise that took us past it and the Bunker Ledge Monument (PE1784) to Islesford and then eventually into Somes Sound. The lighthouse is not publicly accessible; it's best viewed from the water.

The present structure was built in 1889 and served as an active Coast Guard light station until 1982. It was relighted in 1989 by the Friends of Acadia and now operates as an active private aid to navigation.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.
