Sunrise at West Quoddy Head Light

Red and white candy-striped West Quoddy Head Light is one of the most frequently depicted American lighthouses on calendars and posters. The picturesque lighthouse stands on the easternmost point of the United States mainland.

The lighthouse is near the town of Lubec and serves as a marker for the extreme eastern boundary of the U.S. A tower has been on the spot since 1808 and the presidency of Thomas Jefferson. The current tower and light keepers' house opened in 1858 and have been operating continuously since then.
