Shown here are some of the completed 10-foot tall lighthouses that will soon adorn businesses throughout southern Maine. A map will be available to tourists who can then drive from location to location to find and view this amazing collection of 10-foot tall lighthouses that are uniquely decorated and painted with different scenes.
Two of the lighthouses, the Lighthouse Depot, “Undercover Lighthouse” and the Harbour Lights “Cape Ape Lighthouse,” will be on display in front of Lighthouse Depot in Wells, Maine from May to September of this year.
The American Lighthouse Foundation Lighthouse will be on display at various Hannaford Brothers Supermarkets in southern Maine and will help promote the efforts of the American Lighthouse Foundation. The American Lighthouse Foundation ten-foot tall lighthouse was sponsored by LITEHOUSE Foods, (makers of LITEHOUSE Salad Dressing, which is available in the produce section of most grocery stores) and Shipyard Brewing Co, (makers of Shipyard Light Ale, which features different lighthouses on each bottle). Both firms are supporters of the American Lighthouse Foundation’s efforts to save our nation’s lighthouses. It was designed by Maine artist John Byrne.
After September 1, the 10-foot tall lighthouses will be sold at auction to benefit a number of Maine charities.
