Tenants Harbor Light (“Southern Island Light”)


Established 1858

This lighthouse is located on Southern Island in Tenants Harbor in Penobscot Bay, nearest to the town of Tenants Harbor. This lighthouse is well known for being featured in several Andrew Wyeth paintings, including “Signal Flags” and “Fog Bell.” The lighthouse is not accessible to the public as the island is privately owned by artist Jamie Wyeth and only is accessible by boat. Tenants Harbor Light is best seen via boat cruises offered in the area. The light was discontinued in 1934 but still stands today.
