Owl's Head Light
On a small rocky island, off the coast of Maine, is a small white lighthouse called Owl’s Head Light. Owl’s Head is Located in West Penobscot Bay. It enters into Rockland Harbor. The lighthouse was first built in 1825. Then it was automated in 1989. Brick and mortar is what was used to build it. Owl’s Head stands thirty feet high. The characteristic of the light is fixed white. Owl’s Head has a foghorn that sounds every twenty seconds. Issac Sturn was the first keeper and was paid $350.00 per year. Did you know the house was built under a hill? The height of the focal plane is100 feet above water. Also, the main color of the lighthouse is white and since Maine islands seem to be very rocky, it gives lighthouses a boost so lighthouses are built smaller. I think that Owl’s Head Light is a very interesting lighthouse and I hope you think so too!

I enjoyed reading all your information about Owl's Head Lighthouse. I also liked all the details in your drawing. It was interesting to learn why Maine lighthouses are built smaller than other lighthouses.
