History:
Squirrel Point Light is a lighthouse in Arrowsic on the Kennebec River, Maine. It was established in 1898, fifteen years after the founding of the Bath Iron Works, a major shipbuilder, five miles further upriver. It was part of a major upgrade of the river's lights the Doubling Point Light and the separate Range Lights on the point, Perkins Island Light, and Squirrel Point Light were all built at the same time.

Squirrel Point Light was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as "Squirrel Point Light Station" on January 21, 1988.
