Locally known as 'tit Manan, this is one of the state's tallest lighthouses, rising 123 feet, and also one of the least attractive. The high stone tower seems to have no relation to the charmless keeper's house and outbuildings. The light is closed to the public, managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge. It can be seen from Petit Manan Point in Milbridge, reached by a two-mile hike along Shore Trail.
Petit Manan Point was built in 1817.
