Standing For 200 Years On The Coast Of Maine, Burnt Island Lighthouse Is Quaint And Historic

When people think about Maine, they often imagine her craggy coast and nautical feel. And, of course, that includes the many lighthouses that dot the coast. There are 65 lights in Maine and each one serves an important purpose. While some are no longer in constant use and others have been fully automated, the history each one carries is fun to learn. And they’re even more beautiful to visit. Today we’re focusing on one o the oldest in the state and we think you’ll find it just as interesting as we did!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Burnt Island Light can normally be visited, but during the restoration process, it will be closed to visitors. You can keep up with the progress and find out when they’ll be open again by checking out the Keepers of Burnt Light website. When visiting is allowed again we love the idea of taking the Balmy Day Cruises tour which you can learn more about here!

While Burnt Island Light is being restored there are still plenty of other lighthouses to visit! Check out this lighthouse road trip on the Maine coast that’s dreamily beautiful.
