Auction on New England’s tallest lighthouse to end
YORK, Maine (AP) — The federal government is set to close out an auction on a Maine lighthouse that is the tallest in New England.
The Boon Island Light Station, off the coast of York, is up for auction until 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Seven people have bid on the lighthouse so far, with the top bid coming in at $19,001.
Boon Island Light Station dates to 1855 and includes a 133-foot tower on a small island about six miles off the southern Maine coast. It is the tallest lighthouse in New England, but not the highest above sea level.
The bidding could possibly be extended.
