The Spring Point Light

The Spring Point Ledge light was completed in May 1897, on a ledge at the west side of the main shipping channel into Portland Harbor.  This sparkplug style lighthouse is constructed of brick, on a cast-iron caisson.  The four levels inside contain the keeper's office, the watch room, and two levels for living quarters.  The light had a fifth-order Fresnel lens installed, and was automated in 1934.  In 1951, the 900-foot breakwater was constructed.
