Established 1829

This light is located at the Sheepscot River entrance in Cozy Harbor, near West Southport. This light can be viewed from a beach in West Southport or by local boat cruises. The light was noted for the intensity of storms to hit in the area. In fact, during a snowstorm in 1870, a schooner ran aground on a ledge near the lighthouse and the lighthouse keeper discovered a pair of feather mattresses tied together around a box—with a scared baby girl inside!
