Nubble Lighthouse Facts & Directions

Nubble Lighthouse Main Page

 

Interesting Facts:

The Nubble Lighthouse made national news when, in 1977, the US Coast Guard selected the photo of the Nubble Lighthouse to be taken on the Voyager II spacecraft, believing it to be the quintessential lighthouse in America. It was brought into outer space by NASA's "Voyager II" which took the picture of the Cape Neddick (Nubble Lighthouse) into space to represent "The American lighthouse."

 


 

David K. Winchester, a Nubble Light keeper in the 1960s, used the the basket to transport his son to school on the mainland, sending him over the swirling waters below, until the unique technique was publicized in the Boston Globe. Because of the newspaper piece, crowds started to show for the twice-daily event. The U.S. Coast Guard, thinking it was not in the best interest of the child to be 50 feet above the crashing waters, put an end to it.

 


 

The Nubble Lighthouse is the most photographed lighthouse in America.

 


 

Twice each year the lighthouse is adorned with white lights, outlining the houses and tower. The first event is known as "Christmas in July" and the second is the Annual Lighting of the Nubble and both events are held at Sohier Park. The Annual Lighting of the Nubble is always held the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, This is a fun family evening with a variety of entertainment. The lighthouse remains lit after dark through the holiday season.
