Bass Harbor Light Sunset

    Newer Older

    Another shot of the Bass Harbor Lighthouse, second to Portland Head, one of the most photographed lighthouses.

    The history of Bass Harbor Head Light started in 1855 when it was deemed that there was sufficient reason for a lighthouse at the mouth of Bass Harbor. $5000 was appropriated by Congress for its construction in 1858. The construction of a fog bell and tower, which no longer remains today, was completed in 1876 with a much larger 4000 pound bell being placed inside the tower in 1898. The keeper's house remains in its original configuration with the exception of a 10-foot addition that was added in 1900.

    Happy Hump Day

      Now this one of Bass Harbor...FANTASTIC! I was there not long ago and the fog was so thick you couldn't see the water from the top of the rocks.
