For centuries, the lighthouses of New England have played a key role in the maritime history and lore of the nation. From majestic structures, such as Maine’s Portland Head Light and Boston Light (America’s oldest light station), to smaller treasures like diminutive (20 feet tall) Derby Wharf Light in Salem, Massachusetts, New England’s beacons have guided ships safely for countless years and endeared themselves to lighthouse fans everywhere.
