Join us this Saturday, Sept. 18 at noon as we prepare for special guests. One crew will tackle a little fall cleaning in the keeper's house, and another crew will trim the trail, clear debris and mow. FMI and RSVP to info @squirrelpoint.org so that we may plan ahead!
The grounds will be closed Saturday morning* Sept. 25 for a memorial service for the family of Stanley Reynolds, lightkeeper of Squirrel Point from 1950-1955. Thank you for respecting the wishes of the family as they celebrate in private the lives of their loved ones.
We had wonderful visitors (and a few mosquitos) for this year's Maine Open Lighthouse Day! Friends from Chicago, Gloucester Mass, a couple on their honeymoon, a hiking toddler (with her parents!), a young man photographing lighthouses as a pandemic project, intrepid seniors, and neighbors from Georgetown and West Bath and elsewhere. The keeper’s house and boat house were open, Elisabeth made delicious cookies to share, Chris F. kept busy removing invasives and Ed began restoration of the boathouse railway! This critical project, when finished, will allow our work crew to access the property and deliver materials via the Kennebec rather than the mile-long trail from the end of Bald Head Road. We are grateful for all of our visitors Saturday who left a donation to help make this work possible. Keep in touch!
