Whaleback Lighthouse

Fort Foster, Kittery, Maine

At the mouth of the Piscataqua River, sits the historic Whaleback Lighthouse, built in 1872 to replace the original light, heavily damaged by storms. It is built of granite, a stone quite common in New Hampshire and Maine, and is not painted. Some say this is the least glamorous of light houses but I actually love the way look as it compliments the natural beauty of the Northeastern Atlantic coast.
