“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
