Featuring historical information about five lighthouses in Maine and New Hampshire; Nubble Light, York, ME, Boon Island Light, ME, Whale’s Back Light, Kittery, ME, and White Island Light, Rye, NH, Fort Constitution Light, New Castle, NH Lighthouses have long fascinated more people than just the mariners for whom the lights were built. The sight of a light shining through the coastal blackness seems to lend comfort and reassurance even to people who are safely ashore. Worldwide, lighthouses stir the imaginations of artists, poets, and writers. The five lighthouses of the Piscataqua region of New Hampshire and Maine are among the most admired structures of their type in America. Nubble Light in York, Maine, is perhaps the most photographed light in the world. And Boon Island Light, just offshore from Nubble, captivated readers of Kenneth Roberts’ tale of shipwreck and cannibalism in the early 1700s.
