wood island


we fell in love with Wood Island from the second we set eyes on it

the architecture of this historic lighthouse is astounding with cantilevered rock slabs spiraling up to majestic views of the Atlantic Ocean

the 42-foot stone tower authorized by President Thomas Jefferson and built in 1808 is connected to a two-story keeper's house with an oil house and a boathouse situated at the opposite end of the island connected only by a raised wooden walkway a half-mile away

Wood Island is an uninhabited island sitting at the mouth of the Saco River just off the coast of Biddeford, Maine. the island is the nesting site for hundreds of seagulls and other birds. The Audubon Society manages 30 acres as a sanctuary

the Friends of Wood Island Lighthouse, all volunteers, have assumed responsibility for its restoration and use under a license granted by the U.S. Coast Guard as with all that do good they need help & volunteers for the effort - consider adding a small donation with your purchase

may peace prevail
