Description

Bass Harbor Headlight is one of the most picturesque lighthouses in one of the most beautiful areas on the coast of Maine. Located at the southern tip of Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park Bass Harbor Light. “The history of Bass Harbor Head Light dates to 1855, when it was determined that there was sufficient reason for a lighthouse at the mouth of Bass Harbor. In 1885, the U.S. Congress appropriated $5,000 for construction of the lighthouse. In 1876, construction was completed on a fog bell and tower, since removed.[1] A much larger 4,000-pound (1800 kg) bell was placed inside the tower in 1898.[6]” The original is in the collection of the artist.
