Pemaquid Point Light Panoramic Picture - Maine Lighthouse

SKU: PEM1
This panoramic photograph of Pemaquid Point Light was taken by James Blakeway. Commissioned in 1827 by John Quincy Adams, this light is located at the west side entrance to Muscongus Bay in Maine . In 1835, faulty construction necessitated the replacement of the original lighthouse with the 38-foot tower seen in this photograph. This lighthouse sits atop unique striated rock formations formed by glacial ice and waves pounding the area in strong storms. The light, visible on a clear day for 14 miles, was the first in Maine to be automated in 1934. The keeper's house now houses the Fisherman's Museum operated by the town of Bristol.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Panoramic Pictures

Located at the entrance to Muscongus Bay in Bristol, Maine, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is among the most historic lighthouses in the United States. Constructed in 1822, it was commissioned by John Quincy Adams, the sixth U.S. President. Currently owned by the U.S. Coast Guard, it continues to use its fourth order Fresnel lens originally received in 1856.

Pemaquid Point panoramic pictures capture one of the most famous structures of the East Coast, chosen by Maine residents to represent them on their state's quarter design. Currently operated by the Bristol Parks and Recreation Department, the keepers house has been converted to the Fishermen's Museum at Pemaquid, and offers many historical artifacts and other early Americana for viewing.
