Spring Point Ledge Light
From Spring Point Ledge you can see Portland Breakwater Light a few hundred
yards north, and Portland Head Light to the south. Built in 1897, the brick
tower on iron caisson "spark plug" light had a fifth-order lens. It originally
stood 300 yards offshore, but now is at the end of a breakwater built in 1950.
Spring Point Ledge is still an active light, although its industrial
surroundings make it seem missplaced. The light stands adjacent to the old Fort
Preble and features a small gift shop.
