Historic Coast Guard photo of the Monhegan Island Light Station
This gray, granite light was established in 1850 to serve Monhegan Island, known for its art and traditional fishing communities. About 10 miles from the mainland, the light was built at the island's highest point near its center and rises 47 feet up. The station includes the Manana Foghorn. The keeper's house is a museum, open daily June 24 - Sept. 30 and dedicated to Monhegan history.
