Owls Head Lighthouse
|Photo by Jack Ryan
This unique perspective of Owls Head Lighthouse gives a clue as to why the tower design called for a short, 30 foot structure. Sitting high upon a headland hill or promontory, the light reaches a 100 feet above the sea. Owls Head Point juts out into Penobscot Bay, and besides scenic views of the bay, the lighthouse is a big attraction at Owls Head State Park. The light-keepers home is now setup as a U.S. Coast Guard residence and is not open to the public. This site is one of many picturesque light stations which have earned Maine a nickname of the lighthouse state.
