Located on Arrowsic Island in Maine, Squirrel Point Light is one of four navigational aids dating back to 1895 along the Kennebec River's 11 mile stretch between the Atlantic Ocean and Bath, Maine. The U.S. Coast Guard, which owns the property, has granted the Citizens for Squirrel Point an "indefinite license to provide access to the site for the benefit of the public and maritime industry (and) all purposes consistent with the repair, maintenance and historic restoration of the facility."
Visitors are welcome at the Squirrel Point Light on Open Lighthouse Day Saturday, September 10th from 9 am to 3 pm. Volunteers will be on hand to highlight the repairs and restoration completed recently by Blaiklock Carpentry, and discuss plans for the coming year. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day!
