West Quoddy Head Light. Lubec, Maine.

West Quoddy Head Light. Lubec, Maine.

West Quoddy Head in Lubec, Maine is the easternmost point of the contiguous United States and the closest point to Africa from a point in the fifty States. West Quoddy Head is adjacent to the Quoddy Narrows, a narrow strait between Canada and the United States. Since 1808, there has been a lighthouse on the site to guide ships through this waterway. The current one, with distinctive red-and-white stripes, was built in 1808.
