The U.S. Coast Guard, the State of Maine and the American Lighthouse Foundation are pleased to announce the fourth annual Maine Open Lighthouse Day.

One of the largest events of its kind in the country. Lighthouses across the state are open to visitors for tours of the towers and keeper’s houses.

Last year, hundreds of people visited lighthouses along the Maine coast in the largest effort of its kind in the nation.  This year we expect another fun family event.

The partnership with the Coast Guard, State of Maine and American Lighthouse Foundation is intended to increase awareness of Maine’s maritime heritage and the rich history of its lighthouses and lighthouse keepers.
