The majestic sentinels of the Maine coast, some of the most beautiful and storied in the nation, transcend time as they continue to stand “watch” over our rugged shorelines, islands – and in our hearts.
Holding more than the secrets of the sea within their walls, Maine’s lighthouses possess a fascinating ability to speak to us today in a silent but unmistakable language that stirs our emotions and imaginations in a most profound manner.
Their mere presence points to a higher, benevolent purpose – one that is embraced by romance, mystery, drama, isolation, dedication and heroism. Ask over a hundred people what lighthouses mean to them, and it is very likely one will discover the meanings are as diverse as the people they touch.
