The Light On The Nubble
Photograph - Epson Lustre Paper
The Rock (island) is called a nubble with the lighthouse atop...Hence,the Nubble Light. At York Beach in Maine. This light was built on a rock just off shore at Nubble Point in Maine in 1879. An interesting cable car built for one or two people at most, runs from the parking lot at Nubble point to the �The Nubble� or rock upon which the light was built. This is the evidently the only way for people and supplies to reach the light.
President Hayes signed the order providing the huge sum of $15,000 that was spent on building this lighthouse, not a small amount in 1879. The tower is short, only forty feet, but the elevation on the rock is over 80 feet above sea level. An interesting part of the architecture displayed in this image is the walkway from the keepers house to the tower itself. Obviously, this is a requirement where the winter weather is so inclement from time to time that protection is needed to reach the tower. New England farms were also built with this feature connecting the barn and house. This feature is also seen at a number of the other Maine lights.
