Don't Let the Lights Go Out at the Maine Lighthouse Museum

The Maine Lighthouse Museum in Rockland may be forced to close it's doors unless $50,000 can be raised by July 1st of this year.


The museum founded by the late Ken Black, known to many as "Mr. Lighthouse" houses the largest collection of lighthouse and Coast Guard artifacts in the nation.


The collection consists of many priceless fresnel lenses, foghorns, bells, buoys and other artifacts from the U.S. Lighthouse Service and U.S. Lifesaving Service.


It is important that this collection remain in Rockland, Maine, one of only nine officially designated "Coast Guard Cities" in the United States.


Ken's collection was formerly housed at the Shore Village Museum on Limerock Street in Rockland and when the building was sold a new location was needed. The building at the current location is the restored former Courier Newspaper building on the waterfront. The museum now has a $3,500 mortgage. The museum depends on memberships,admissions, contributions and fund-raising events. In the current economy donations are at an all time low.


Please Help! No donation is too large or too small! You may contact Dot Black the Interim Director at the museum at 207 594-3301 or email info@mainelighthousemuseum.org


Or you may send a check to:

My best,
