The small Nubble Light provides guidance to mariners above the rocky coastline at Cape Neddick, near York, Maine. The Nubble Light only stands 41 feet high. The architects of the Nubble Light used the topography of the island to ensure the light would appear high up for sailors: the light is over 88 feet from the sea due to its precarious perch on the rocky island.
This lighthouse is also known as the Cape Neddick Lighthouse, or the Cape Neddick Light, due to its location on Cape Neddick.
