Welcome to Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse
Southern Maine lighthouses attract thousands of visitors every year, but few of them offer the unique opportunity to Step Into History and actually tour a real working lighthouse. Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is the only caisson-style light station in the United States that visitors can walk to. Located on the breakwater at Southern Maine Community College in South Portland, the lighthouse has been an integral part of the history of Portland harbor and Casco Bay since 1897.
Thank you for visiting the official web site for Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. We hope you enjoy your virtual tour and will take advantage of an opportunity to visit us in person during our summer Open House season.
Enjoy the history of the lighthouse and learn how it works in this delightful 12-page, full-color comic book. Download it for free [PDF, 7 mb].
