Cape Neddick Lighthouse

April 23, 2019

Cape Neddick Light, located in York, Maine, is about as iconic a lighthouse as there is. Located on a small island just off Cape Neddick, it is popular location for tourists and photographers.

Built in 1879, it is made of a cast iron exterior with a brick lining. It wasn’t automated until 1987 and unlike many lighthouses it still has a Fresnel lens.

According to Wikipedia, the Voyager spacecraft carried an image of the lighthouse along with other iconic images such as the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.
