Hendricks Head Light Station was commissioned in 1829 on a wind-swept point on Southport Island near Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  Today, it has the distinction of being the only Coast Guard operated lighthouse in Maine that is privately owned in its entirety.  The keepers house has been completely refurbished and is now used as a family residence.  The entire light station - the light tower, the bell tower, oil house and grounds have been restored to their original pristine condition..  For more information on Hendricks Head Light click here.   http://lighthouse.cc/menu.html
