“featured on the Maine State Quarter”

Rising above crashing surf and spectacular rock formations, the Pemaquid Lighthouse is a cultural and historical treasure. Each year, about 100,000 visitors come to explore the park grounds, take in the panoramic view of the Atlantic and marvel at one of the state's best known icons. It is so honored that, in 2003, Maine citizens voted to use its likeness to represent them on the state quarter. The tower and Keeper's House were constructed iin 1827. But neither lasted long, perhaps because the builder used salt water to mix his lime mortar. The second contract stipulated that only fresh water be used. The new tower, built by stone mason Joseph Berry from Georgetown, was completed in 1835. A new wood frame Keeper's House was added in 1857. At about the same time, the tower was upgraded with new technology: the Fresnel lamp. The beacon that shines today is that same, fourth-order lamp which can be seen 14 nautical miles out to sea

Beautiful landscape! We had a great time walking far out on the rocks with the wonderful view of the lighthouse. We could have spent hours here!

The beach/park was well maintained with a beautiful view of the surrounding ocean! For just $3 you can climb to the top of the lighthouse and see a beautiful panoramic view! Definitely worth the stop!
