Today Cape Elizabeth's tower shines the most powerful light in Maine--a 4 million candlepower flashing white light visible for 27 miles. Located in Two Lights State Park, the keeper's house is now a private residence in an excusive neighborhood. The remains of the western tower are down the street in someone else's front yard.
Update 1999: The gingerbread keeper's house at the active light has been demolished by the owner, to be replaced by a "replica" with a two-car garage added. The lighthouse, which is not privately owned, remains untouched.
