Camden Maine Lighthouses - beacons of hope and warning for the wayward mariner

Maine culture would not be the same without lighthouses. Maine has 68 lighthouses, 18 of which are within a 40 mile radius of Camden Maine. The midcoast region of Maine is comprised of hundreds of peninsulas with an array of coves, nooks, harbors, islands and many miles of jagged coastline that became both beautiful and dangerous for navigation. Built in the 1800s by some of America's most renown architects and engineers on some of the most challenging coastal terrain in the world, Maine lighthouses served as both beacons of hope and warning for the wayward mariner. There was a time when the revolving lights served as a comfort for both the sailor and their families. Maritime families knew that the light could pierce the fog and guide their sailors home. Today, if you are interested in lighthouses and their histories, you can visit the Maine Lighthouse Museum in Rockland, Maine to relive some of the most heroic moments from Maine's seafaring past.

Below we have listed the 18 lighthouses which are located within the Midcoast Maine region. A number of these lighthouses can only be reached by boat and/or viewed from a boat tour while others may be closed to the public. We have provided information below that lists the location and general accessibility of each lighthouse for public viewing.

Brown's Head Light - Vinalhaven, ME

Brown's Head Light is located near the northwest corner of Vinalhaven island, marking the popular seaway between Vinalhaven and North Haven. Jeremiah Berry of East Thomaston built the original rubblestone tower and dwelling. During the 19th century, Vinalhaven was home to a thriving granite industry. (Granite was shipped from the area for the Washington Monument and the Brooklyn Bridge.) It was this industry, as well as the fishing industry, that led President Andrew Jackson to appropriate $4,000 for the development of Brown's Head Light in 1832.
