This Maine quarter depicts a rendition of the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse atop a granite coast and the last three-masted schooner of the Windjammer Fleet. Pemaquid Point Light is located in New Harbor, and marks the entrance to Muscongus Bay and Johns Bay. A shoal created hazardous navigation conditions, causing many shipwrecks and as maritime trade increased in the area, so did the need for a lighthouse. In 1826, Congress appropriated funds to build a lighthouse at Pemaquid Point. Although the original building was replaced in 1835, and the original 10 lamps in 1856, the light is still a beacon for ships and remains one of Maine's most popular tourist attractions. The schooner resembles "Victory Chimes, " the last three-masted schooner of the Windjammer Fleet. "Victory Chimes" has become synonymous with Maine windjamming.
