Wood Island Station Tower Camera, ME, USA

The Wood Island Life Saving Station is a national register of historic places eligible building from 1908 on a small island in Kittery Pt. ME only a few hundred yards from the New Hampshire state border. It was used by the US Life Saving Service as a base for men to live and be ready to rescue mariners in distress. In 1915 they became the US Coast Guard. The station was decommissioned in 1948 and not well maintained. A charity has been working hard to fully restore the station and make it available for the public as a maritime museum. The work is not yet completed, but it is making excellent progress.
