Whitlock's Mill Light Station
1 Park Drive
P.O. Box F Rockland, ME US 04841
Whitlock's Mill Light Station was established on a bend on the St. Croix River in 1892. It is Maine's northernmost light station.
The original light station didn't have a tower. Instead, a local mill owner simply took a red lantern to the south bank of the river and hung the lantern from a tree.
In 1910, a convention light tower was built. The light was automated in 1969 and still functions as a navigational aid.
The keeper's house is privately owned and not open to the public. The light tower is owned by the St. Croix Historical Society.
