Fog and misty sea conditions are no strangers along the coast of Midcoast Maine. Their shrouding presence often shows up at the doorstep of Owls Head Lighthouse, prompting the light station’s fog horn to spring into action to help warn mariners of nearby navigational dangers.
When this time-honored “battle” between fog and the sound signal occurs at Owls Head Light, visitors usually “run for cover” to avoid the horn’s mighty blasts. This is not the case for the work crews of J.B. Leslie Company, Inc., who have been contracted by the American Lighthouse Foundation to facilitate historic restoration work at the site.
