Maine’s Popular “Open Lighthouse Day” Salutes the State’s Maritime Heritage on September 13, 2014

Complimentary Entry to 22 Iconic Light Stations

The State of Maine’s sixth annual Open Lighthouse Day will take place on Saturday, September 13 with lighthouses open throughout the state and free entry available to visitors on this one day.  The popular event, sponsored by the United States Coast Guard, the Maine Office of Tourism and the American Lighthouse Foundation, draws between 15,000 to 18,000 visitors annually with the unique opportunity to climb and learn about Maine’s historic lights.

“As one of our largest industries, tourism provides an outstanding way for Maine to attract visitors, create jobs and provide new investment opportunities,” said Governor Paul R. LePage.  “My administration is committed to supporting events and activities that showcase our state as a terrific place to visit, study, and invest.”
