Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse

(5 of 74)


Located in Stacyville, ME (15 miles from Islesboro)

Many people ask us if the breakwater was built to connect the lighthouse to the land. In fact, the breakwater was built first. In the 1850s several severe nor’easters caused considerable damage to many Rockland waterfront structures, businesses and to ships in the harbor. Lack of a protective breakwater clearly prevented the harbor from realizing its potential as a commercial port and a harbor of refuge for coastal shipping. In spite of citizen petitions and intervention by a local Senator, Congress did not approve constuction of a breakwater until 1880.

Owls Head Light

Located in Owls Head, ME (15 miles from Islesboro)

Nobody is quite sure how Owl's Head got its name. Some say the picturesque promontory resembles an owl from the water, but it takes great imagination to see anything of the sort. Some say Owl's Head is the English translation of the Indian name for the spot, Medadacut.
