The 'Beacon of Light' Campaign - THE BRICKS ARE IN NOW!

Engraved BrickThe Memorial Bricks are now in the ground at the museum and they look great! The bricks are a great way to honor a loved one or celebrate a special life event!

The completion of the East entrance brick walkway to the Museum marks the completion of Phase One of the project. The Phase Two campaign to complete the West Entrance brick walkway has begun.

Having the donor walkway is an exciting addition to the start of the 2012 season. I want to thank all the donors for supporting Phase One of this project. Your continued support is greatly appreciated and without it this project would not have come to fruition.

If you would like to order a memorial brick for the West Entrance walkway just print the form below and send it along with your check for $75 to: Maine Lighthouse Museum, Brick Campaign, One Park Drive, P.O. Box 1116 Rockland, Maine 04841
