"At one point lighthouses were critical navigation aids to mariners. Their bright beacons and resonating foghorns cut through foul weather, warning ships of impending danger and guiding them safely back to shore. In this age of radar and GPS, lighthouses no longer have the significance they once did, yet these distinctive structures still carry the romance and drama of their pasts. More than 60 lighthouses dot the coast of Maine from Nubble Light in York to West Quoddy Head, the easternmost lighthouse in the United States."
