"Cape Neddick Light, York, Maine" by Catherine Sherman.
The Cape Neddick Light, a lighthouse in Cape Neddick, York, Maine, is a famous American icon.
In 1874 Congress appropriated $15,000 to build a light station at the "Nubble" and in 1879 construction began. Cape Neddick Light Station was dedicated by the U.S. Lighthouse Service and put into use in 1879. It is still in use today.
The Cape Neddick Light stands on Nubble Island about 100 yards (91 m) off Cape Neddick Point. It is commonly known as "Nubble Light" or simply "the Nubble."
The Voyager spacecraft, which carries photographs of Earth's most prominent man-made structures and natural features, includes a photo of Nubble Light as well as images of the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.
This iconic lighthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
