Saddleback Ledge Light Station was established in 1839 on a barren, quarter-acre rock heap between Isle au Haut and Vinalhaven. Storms continually scoured the island, which could make it a miserable and even treacherous place for lightkeepers and their families. In 1954, the stout, granite tower was automated.
