Owls Head Lighthouse is a short, stubby lighthouse only 20 feet tall, yet stands 100 feet above the water. It began service in 1825, and it is one of the oldest existing towers in Maine. An electronic pure tone fog signal warns the mariner of Owls Head when the weather becomes "thick". A fixed 4th order lens is still in use in the lantern room. The Owl's Head Lighthouse got its name due to the fact that from the water the point looks like an owl's head with two caves serving as the eyes.

Kent Falls, located in the northeastern section of the town of Kent, is a series of waterfalls on a mountain stream known as Falls Brook. The stream begins in the town of Warren, draining an area of six or seven square miles. It then flows west to the big fall where it plunges approximately 70 feet in a dramatic cascade. From here the stream descends in a series of lesser falls and cascades to the valley, where it enters the Housatonic River some 200 feet below the brink of the big fall only a quarter mile away. Much of the limestone over which the brook flows has been carved into interesting shapes including numerous potholes of all sizes.
