Mount Desert Rock Lighthouse, Maine
In August 2009 Hurricane Bill struck the Rock and destroyed the 1895 boat house and 2 walls of the generator shed. During the storm furniture on the first floor of the Keepers house bounced along the walls like a pinball machine causing damage. The College of the Atlantic has attempted to make repairs to the facility but finding funding to make repairs is always difficult. In April 2014 the Mars family (of candy-bar fame) pledged a $425,000 grant to upgrade the facilities of Mount Desert Rock.
