Nubble Light

Cape Neddick " Nubble " Light, York, Maine. Established in 1876, first illuminated July 1, 1879. The distinctive red oil house was built in 1902. The Nubble light has probably appeared on more postcards and calendars than any other New England lighthouse. When NASA sent Voyager II into space it was loaded with artifacts designed to teach possible extraterrestrial civilizations about our planet, one of the images carried was a picture of the Nubble Light.
