Wood Island LighthouseBiddeford, ME
Wood Island Lighthouse is an active lighthouse that has been lighting Saco Bay since it was commissioned in 1808. The light is just outside the entrance to Biddeford Pool. In 1986, the last keeper left the island and the light was automated. Wood Island Light is Maine's second oldest lighthouse and the eleventh oldest in the country. Deer can sometimes be seen on the island and are reported to swim the half mile channel to Biddeford Pool. In winter, it is sometimes possible to see snowy owls on the island. FOWIL's Historical Committee has worked to preserve the history of this location along with countless volunteers, and contributions of past keepers and their families. Phone line for reservations is available from Monday - Friday between 9am-5pm 207-200-4552
