Rockland Harbor Southwest Light

SHARE

Established 1902

This is the most recently built lighthouse in Maine, built in 1987. It’s also the only lighthouse to be privately built and owned. But it’s an active aid to navigation, marking a dangerous “seal ledge.” The lighthouse is near Rockland Harbor, nearest to the town of Owls Head. It’s not accessible to the public but can be seen on boat tours in the area.
