Cape Neddick "Nubble" Light


186 York Street York, ME US 03909




Cape Neddick Lighthouse, often called "Nubble Light," was completed in 1879. The picturesque and often-photographed lighthouse features a charming, Victorian keeper's house with gingerbread trim and a lantern with miniature cast-iron lighthouses on its railing. When NASA officials picked photos for the Voyager spacecraft - photos intended to identify Earth if the craft fell into extraterrestrial hands - they included a photo of the Nubble.

The station sits on a tiny island just off-shore at York. The island and light station are off-limits to the public, except during occasional tours by Friends of Nubble Light. But the light can be seen easily from the mainland at York's Sohier Park.
