Lighthouse - Maine

Andy | Tuesday, August 07, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Nubble Light, also known as Cape Neddick Light Station. The park that overlooks this picturesque lighthouse is called Sohier Park, donated to the Town of York by William Davies Sohier. This picturesque and often photographed lighthouse features a charming, Victorian keeper's house with gingerbread trim and a lantern with miniature cast iron lighthouses on its railing. When NASA officials picked photos for the Voyager Spacecraft, intended to identify the Earth if the craft fell into extraterrestrial hands, they included a photo of the Nubble. The station is off-limits to the public except for occasional tours by Friends of Nubble Light, but it is easily viewed from Sohier Park in York Beach, about 200 yards away. Cape Neddick "The Nubble" Lighthouse was built in 1879
