Originally built in 1851, the light was deactivated but again reactivated in 1987. The town of Islesboro currently owns the lighthouse and surrounding buildings and the keeper's house is now a museum. Visitors have easy access to the small light tower.

The lighthouse is located on the western side of Islesboro Island and can be easily reached by a ferry ride from Lincolnville.

The keeper's house is a museum which is open to the public. You can also climb the small tower and walk around the lantern room. Exact hours they're open is uknown.

Personal Note:
Grindle Point Light cannot be seen from the mainland but you can take a ferry to it from Lincolnville, just north of Camden.
