Samoset Rd., Rockland, ME , United States

Located at the end of a 7/8-mile breakwater (essentially a man-made granite seawall stretching from the shore), this historic lighthouse is open to visitors only on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day. The last coast guard keeper vacated the lighthouse in the mid-1960's, but in recent years, a group of committed local residents undertook its restoration and preservation — an ongoing labor of love that relies exclusively on volunteers. Built in 1900, the 25-foot lighthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places.
