Wood Island Lighthouse

Wood Island light was built in 1808 to guide mariners into Wood Island Harbor.  The 47-foot rubblestone tower is the original, making it Maine's oldest lighthouse tower.  There was a fourth-order Fresnel lens installed in 1858.  That was removed in 1972 and was replaced by an aerobeacon.  It was automated in 1986 and, due to to complaints, a smaller lens was installed.
