Looking to protect Maine's Portland Harbor from further severe storms, a local contractor placed a rubble stone breakwater into a section of the harbor entrance. Money ran out before an ashlar capstone was completed over the 1,800 foot length of the breakwater. Eventually, when a lighthouse was placed to mark the breakwater's end, light-keepers had a difficult time getting out to the tower even in calm weather.
