“Extending into the harbor from the grounds of Fort Preble on the Southern Maine Community College 
Campus in South Portland, visitors will find a conspicuous profile in the landscape at the end of a 950-foot breakwater.
It is Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse, a caisson-style lighthouse built in 1898 to warn mariners of a dangerous
ledge in Portland Harbor upon which it sits.” — Source: visitportland.com

  1. It’s one of three “sparkplug” style lighthouses in the state, or so we’re told of the one just south of us, in the Lubec Channel. I do find them rather charming in their own way.
