Deer Island Thorofare Light
"Mark Island, Maine"
"This 25 foot tall square, brick tower and attached entryway (known locally as the Mark Island Light) are all that remain of the one-time light station. It sits on the west side of Mark Island, at the south side of the westerly approach to Deer Island Thorofare. The original 1-1/2 story keeper's dwelling and other outbuildings were demolished after the light was automated. The tower originally held a fourth-order Fresnel lens."
