  Ram Island Lighthouse. Ram Island, Maine
This is a popular name for islands in Maine, which has 21 different Ram Islands. This one, in Boothbay Harbor, once was used to quarantine rams to control sheep breeding. The light marks a passage into Boothbay Harbor and includes a keeper's house, although it is some distance inland. The light is not open to the public, although the grounds can be visited by appointment. The light can be seen from Ocean Point at the end of Route 96 on Linekin Neck in Boothbay Harbor. It also can be viewed from various cruises. Ram Island Light Station was built in 1883.
