Owls Head Lighthouse To Be Fixed Up 

The 185-year-old lighthouse which sits on a point at Owls Head will undergo a renovation.The American Lighthouse Foundation will begin an $80,000 upgrade on the Owls Head lighthouse today. Bob Trapani, Foundation Executive Director, says that this is necessary because weather batters the lighthouse each year. Besides the $80,000 used to refurbish the lighthouse, the Coast Guard will invest $168,000 to restore the lantern, granite slabs the lantern sits on, the ironwork, and windowpanes that surround the light.
