Doubling Point Lighthouse
|Photo by Betsy Kellenberger
This delightful little lighthouse on the Kennebec River is dwarfed by the immense Bath Iron Works in the background. One of four beacons established in the late 1800s on the lower Kennebec, the Doubling Point Light remained in service until the 1970s. The light-station was sold off in 1935 to private interests. With later decommission, the fresnel lens became an exhibit at the Shore Village Museum in Rockland.
