In more than 190 years of history at Owls Head, “Spot” the dog maybe the light station’s most beloved story – an account that is both heroic and heartwarming.

Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue is about Spot, a remarkable spaniel who lived at Owls Head Light with the keeper’s family in the 1930s,” says Angeli Perrow. “He learned to ring the fog bell to greet passing boats and came to the rescue of the Matinicus mailboat one stormy winter night.”

Don’t miss the chance to talk with Angeli Perrow and purchase a signed copy of Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue. While on site, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to tour Owls Head Lighthouse, which will be open to visitors for Maine Open Lighthouse Day, as will the interpretive center and gift shop inside the keeper’s house at the light station.
