Winter Harbor Light

Photo Credit: Guido Alvez


Winter Harbor was long a favorite safe harbor for mariners seeking shelter from storms. In 1856, a lighthouse was built for $4,500 on four-acre Mark Island to guide vessels into the harbor and to warn of dangerous ledges nearby. The lighthouse went into service on Jan. 1, 1857, and was decommissioned in 1933. It is now privately owned. You can best see this lighthouse by boat. You can also see it distantly from the roadside on the Schoodic Peninsula.
