Bass Harbor - Acadia Np
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
The cliff-side Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in Acadia National Park, Tremont marks the entrance to Bass Harbor on the southwestern side of Mount Desert Island, Maine. The lighthouse was built of brick in 1858 on a stone foundation, stands 56 feet above mean high water and is accessible by car. Parking is free and it is open daily from 9:00 AM to sunset.
Congress, appropriated $5,000 for the construction of the Bass Harbor Head Light after it was determined that 'sufficient need' existed to have a lighthouse near the entrance to Bass Harbor. This was followed by the addition of a fog bell and tower in 1876. However, this was replaced by a substantially larger 4,000 pound (1,800 kg) bell in 1898 when it was installed within the tower. On January 21, 1988, the lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places, reference number 87002273, under the title of Bass Harbor Head Light Station.
There is also a keeper's house that remains pretty much in its original form other than a 10 foot addition that was added in 1900. However, the house serves as an actual full-time residence for a U.S. Coast Guard family. They ask that their privacy be respected.
