Petit Manan Light Station was established in 1817. The current tower, locally known as 'tit Manan, is one of the state's tallest lighthouses, rising 123 feet. The granite block tower seems to bear 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.
