Established 1854

This light is located on Greens Island near the entrance to Hurricane Sound, nearest to the town of Vinalhaven. This lighthouse is not accessible to the public but can be viewed via boat tour or scenic flights in the area. Before the lighthouse was automated, the keeper Captain Levi Farnham trained his dog Nemo to bark in response to ship whistles on foggy nights, which was considered essential for guiding ships to safety.
