Historic Coast Guard photo of Libby Island Light Station.
This station, which marks the entrance to Machias Bay, was established in 1822 and rebuilt and refurbished several times afterwards. Philmore Wass, raised here when his father was the keeper, wrote a memoir of that time, 'Lighthouse in My Life.' The light was automated in 1974 and is closed to the public. The keeper's house and other outbuildings are gone. Charter and excursion boats offer water views of the tower.
