Established 1851

This light is located in Gilkey Harbor, nearest to the town of Islesboro. The light is accessible to the public via a ferry from Lincolnville Beach. The Sailors Memorial Museum is located in the keeper’s house and is open during the summer. In 1934, the lighthouse was deactivated, but the people of Islesboro persuaded the Coast Guard to relight it in 1987.
