Sit and Enjoy the Beauty of Nubble Lighthouse by 

Bench by the ocean and Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine.

The Nubble Lighthouse, perched atop a rocky outcrop in York Beach, Maine, stands 41 feet high, 88 feet above sea level.The Nubble began operating in 1879 after a five-year construction effort. It was painted white in 1902 after intially being red or possibly brown. Its red beacon flashes at six-second intervals and can be seen from 13 nautical miles away.

Like all lighthouses in the Seacoast, The Nubble is automated. The last lighthouse keeper moved out in July 1989, and the house is no longer occupied.

One of the most popular times to view The Nubble is when the town of York lights up the lighthouse and buildings for Christmas, on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. The lights come on at dusk from then until the first week of January.

There is free parking at Sohier Park, at the end of Nubble Road in York Beach, with an excellent view of the lighthouse. The lighthouse and grounds, however, are not open to the public.
