Nubble Lighthouse, Cape Neddick, York Maine. The "Nubble" is a small, rocky island a short distance off the eastern point of Cape Neddick, north of the entrance to the York River and York Harbor. In 1602, explorer Bartholomew Gosnold met with local Indians on the island and dubbed it "Savage Rock." The 41-foot cast-iron tower, lined with brick, was first illuminated on July 1, 1879. At first, the lighthouse was painted reddish-brown, showing a fixed red light through a fourth order Fresnel lens. The lighthouse still exhibits a red light, but the tower has been painted white since 1902.
