Burnt Island

Photo Credit: Jeremy D'Entremont


Burnt Island Light Station was built in 1821. Located at the western entrance to Boothbay Harbor, this light station’s restored buildings now serve as a living history museum where interpreters in period clothing portray a lighthouse family who once were keepers there. You can take a natural history walk along the perimeter trail and learn from interpreters about the flora, fauna and geological features of this island. You can also learn about Maine’s marine resources, the methods used to harvest them, and the measures used to conserve them. Boat trips take passengers between the island and the mainland. You can also see this light from Grandview Avenue in Boothbay Harbor.
