West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, Maine, USA
The site of West Quoddy Head Light, on the Bay of Fundy in Lubec, Maine, is famously the easternmost point in the United States. Congress put up $5,000 for the first wooden station in 1806, which has been rebuilt twice since it opened in 1808. The current tower, completed in 1858, stands at only 49 feet high, but it has a striking presence thanks to its red-and-white stripes.
