Late afternoon sunlight casts long shadows on the landscape in this panorama of West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. There’s a slight chill in the air replacing the warm summer afternoon and evening temperatures here ,…a reminder that autumn is slowly approaching.

It’s been a busy season here at Quoddy Head State Park in Lubec, Maine.

The exceptional weather continues and the visitors center at the lighthouse welcomes all visitors.

Remember that on Saturday, September 14, 2013 there will be open house at West Quoddy Head Lighthouse.

Open Lighthouse Day

Saturday, September 14, 2013

The U.S. Coast Guard, the State of Maine and the American Lighthouse Foundation are pleased to announce the fourth annual Maine Open Lighthouse Day.

Last year, hundreds of people visited lighthouses along the Maine coast in the largest effort of its kind in the nation. This year we expect another fun family event.

The partnership with the Coast Guard, State of Maine and American Lighthouse Foundation is intended to increase awareness of Maine’s maritime heritage and the rich history of its lighthouses and lighthouse keepers.

Enjoy and we’ll see you at West Quoddy Head Lighthouse.
