Maine marks National Lighthouse Day on Tuesday

Written by

STATEWIDE - On Tuesday, Mainers marked National Lighthouse Day, a time to honor the beacon of light that has symbolized safety and security for hundreds of years.

At one point, lighthouses could be found across almost all shorelines of the United States. In order to observe the event, all one has to do is visit one of many of Maine's lighthouses.

 

The Maine Lighthouse Trust also is honoring the day by offering what it hopes will be Maine's first lighthouse specialty license plate for free. More information is available on the organization's website.
