DescriptionThe lighthouse on Seguin Island houses the only still operating 1st order Fresnel lens north of Rhode Island. The lighthouse is a conical granite tower topped by a black cast iron lantern room.
The light is very distantly visible from the road leading to Popham Beach. The photos posted were shot from that location with long telephoto lenses.
