GOAT ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE

Goat Island Lighthouse

Goat Island Lighthouse sits perched on the southern end of Goat Island. Originally built of split stone, it stood 20 feet high. In 1859 the structure was replaced by the slightly larger painted brick tower that is visible today.

Goat Island was the last of the Maine lighthouses to have a U.S. Coast Guard keeper. Restored to its 1950s state by the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust, visitors can still view the lighthouse from Cape Porpoise.
