Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse
|Photo by Robert O'Connell
This stout and sturdy looking cast iron lighthouse came about after years of begging from unlucky captains and members of the maritime industry. Seems a dangerous rock ledge, blocking the western main shipping channel into Portland, caused considerable hull damage over the years. Once the project was partially funded, construction efforts met with foul weather and contractor-inspector squabbles.
