    West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec, ME is the eastern most point in the US.  Here is a link for more info about the lighthouse: http://www.lighthouse.cc/westquoddy/

    It is not far from Campobello Island where FDR had a summer home:http://www.lighthouse.cc/westquoddy/. 

    Interestingly, Campobello Island is part of Canada.  The FDR property is a U.S. National Park in a foreign country.  Even more interesting is that you can get there by car from the US, but can only get there by boat from Canada. (The ferry to or from mainland Canada is a very interesting adventure.  It is actually a 2 ferry trip).

    The real debate in Maine is where does the sun rise first (a "big issue" for 1/1/2000)?  Is it seen first at the eastern most point in the US, West Quoddy or at the highest, eastern most point, Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park http://www.acadiamagic.com/cadillac-summit-01.html?

    I have been to all of these places when I lived in Maine.

    Simple question, but no simple answer. The easternmost point in the US is up for debate.  The location of the first sunrise in the US depends on the season.  While West Quoddy Head is the easternmost point in the continental US, it only sees the first sunrise 34 days a year.  Cadillac Mountain on Mound Desert Island sees it first in the winter.  Mars Hill Mountain sees it first in the summer.  Mount Katahdin, the highest point in Maine, never sees it first. read more

    According to the U.S. Geological Survey, by longitude, the easternmost point in the United States is in Alaska.

    The Aleutian Islands cross the Greenwich Meridian. This makes them the easternmost point in the United States. Pochnoi Point on Semisopochnoi Island, Alaska is at 179°46'E.

    I have not been to Pochnoi Point on Semisopochnoi Island in Alaska, but I have a photograph of this location on a Hub I wrote about US geography.
