Pemaquid Point Light

One of the most frequently visited tourist sites in Maine, Pemaquid Point is a quintessential example of the landscape found along the coast.

Immigrants from Bristol, England, established a settlement at Pemaquid in 1631. The village had as many as 200 people by the 1670s, but Abenaki Indians burned it during King Philip’s War. The settlement was rebuilt but suffered further attacks from the Indians and the French, and it was abandoned before 1700. It was resettled in 1729. Today, the area is part of the town of Bristol, incorporated in 1765.

Views like this can be seen at the Hog Island Audubon Camp, which offers week long retreats for, birders, conservationists, and educators to reconnect with nature and explore wildlife.
