The lighthouse has become a symbol for Maine and they have guided many mariners around rocky ledges and dense fog for more than 200 years. Michigan is the only state that can say it has more lighthouses than Maine.

Maine lighthouses were originally kept up by a lighthouse keeper and sometimes by his family as well. Most keepers were said to be very lonely, especially the offshore ones. There are many stories about the isolated lighthouse keeper who lived by his duty to man the lighthouse. Their lives were based on risk and responsibility.
