The Spring Point Ledge Light Trust was formed by the Portland Harbor Museum in early 1998 to acquire ownership of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. The lighthouse was one of 28 in the state of Maine which were being turned over to non-profit organizations and governmental agencies under the Maine Lights Program. The transfer of ownership took place in a public ceremony in Rockland, ME on June 20, 1998.

  • Historical sight. Needs transport to get there. Has no facilities such as food, souvenir stand and restroom etc. 
  • This is NOT a handicap friendly lighthouse. You can see it from the shore, but if you want to walk out to it, you'll have to be fairly physically fit. I'm not kidding when I say that I felt like a kid...  read more »
  • I did not pay the $5 to tour the lighthouse itself, but the walk on the jetty was a memorable one, and provided some great photo opportunities. The lighthouse was strikingly short, but obviously did its job well. Worth a visit!
  • Ok place to view the harbor. Very clean bathrooms at the "Art Studio". The girl working there will even help guide you around the premises. Very inviting.
  • One of my favorite lighthouses, fun walk to get out to it as well.
  • Spring Point Lighthouse is another fairly small lighthouse like Bug Point, a short drive from Portland. The parking lot is tiny and often full so you may be in for a walk. The Lighthouse can be walked to across a narrow jetty. Not the traditional picturesque lighthouse, but nice regardless.
  • Nice place to sit and watch the harbor activity.
