Whitehead Light Station located in Rockland, Maine


Whitehead Light Station located in Rockland, Maine

Whitehead Light Station was commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson in 1803. It was the seventh lighthouse commissioned in the United States and has been in continuous operation ever since. In 1891 the original rubble stone keeper’s dwelling was razed and the current two-family dwelling for the keeper and assistant was built on the old foundation. In 1895 a second assistant keeper was added to the crew. A single-family house for the Head Keeper was built in 1900. The light was automated in 1982 and both keeper’s dwellings were boarded up and abandoned. The lovely Head Keeper's House was torn down in the mid-1980s, and outcry over its demise, along with that of a few other lovely keeper’s houses along the Maine Coast, gave rise to the Maine Lights Program.

 


It was through the efforts of the Island Institute that federal legislation was passed that made it possible for responsible owners to be found for nearly all of the 32 lighthouse properties in Maine. Pine Island Camp, a nonprofit with a 40-year history of responsible stewardship on Whitehead Island, applied for and was granted ownership of the Light Station in 1997.
