West Quoddy Lighthouse
Photograph - Epson Lustre Paper
West Quoddy lighthouse in far Eastern Maine. A very distinct candy striped light on the easternmost mainland point of the United States. This lighthouse was built in 1858 and is a cast-iron structure overlaid with brick. The first structure here was built in 1808 was was a rubble masonry tower. The second light was built in 1850 and quickly became unstable and was replaced with the current tower. A visit here is a must if the lighthouse aficionados enjoy spectacular ocean views. Truly the main coast with a long pathway along the cliff like stone escarpments.
