The owners, Kathy Finnegan and Tim Harrison, advertise this business establishment as "The World's Largest Lighthouse Gift and Collectibles Store".
You can't miss it as you drive on Rt l North out of Ogunquit. The sign for Lighthouse Depotin front of the store is large and colorful. The assorted sizes and types of lawn lighthouses displayed in front of the store building would be hard to miss!
This mecca for lighthouse lovers actually consists of two buildings. The main building houses the store itself, which has two floors filled with everything from lighthouse trash cans, to Christmas ornaments, to a line of clothing, as well as books, tapes, etc. The museum and gallery are right next door and there is no admission fee. The historical info and parts of old lighthouses are well detailed and displayed in the museum. You'll find some unique framed watercolor paintings as well as fine prints, depicting views from and of lighthouses throughout the US.
