New! Local historian, Richard Parsons reveals the fascinating human history behind this welcoming light.
Wood Island Lighthouse is the fifth-oldest lighthouse in the
state, and it has cast its beacon into the Gulf of Maine for more than
two hundred years. Its myths and legends have passed through the
generations as it set the scene for murders, suicides, shipwrecks,
ghosts, heroism and even humorous events. The lighthouse keepers, their
families and even their pets have helped shape a unique patchwork of
history at this lonely outpost. Local historian and board member of the
Friends of Wood Island Lighthouse Richard Parsons reveals the
fascinating human history behind this welcoming light.
