Franklin Island Light


1 Park Drive P.O. Box F Rockland, ME US 04841




This light station, on the northwest side of Franklin Island, was created in 1807 to mark the entrance to Muscongus Bay. After being rebuilt several times, the light was automated in 1967 and the keeper's house and other outbuildings were demolished. A white conical brick light tower remains. It can be viewed by boat or seen faintly from the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Preserve on Route 32 in New Harbor.
