Portland Head Lighthouse

April 25, 2019

Following up on my prior post, another iconic Maine lighthouse is the one at Portland Head. Lit in 1791 and made of brick, it is now a popular park and museum. It includes the adjacent Fort Williams property.

The keeper quarters were occupied until 1989, when it was automated. It was leased to the town and deeded to them shortly after.
