The Cape Neddick Light is a lighthouse in Cape Neddick, York, Maine. In 1874, Congress appropriated $15,000 to build a light station at the "Nubble" and in 1879 construction began. The tower is lined with brick and sheathed with cast iron. It stands 41 feet (12 m) tall but the light is 88 feet (27 m) above sea level because of the additional height of the steep rocky islet on which it sits.
