Bass Harbor Head Light on Mount Desert Island near Arcadia National Park, Maine. The station was established and built in 1858 and automated in 1974. The station is a brick construction and the height of the tower is 32 feet (focal plane 56 feet) and is attached to a wood-frame keeper's house. It has served to warn mariners of the Bass Harbor Bay at the entrance to Bass Harbor and to mark the entrance to Blue Hill Bay.
