Additional Details:
Portland Head Light. The most prominent as well as the most picturesque of Portland's harbor lights. The oldest light on the Atlantic Coast. Lighted for the first time on January 10, 1791, it has burned nightly for over one hundred years to mark the narrow ship channel which leads to "The National Seaport." It stands on that noble promontory, Portland Head, and is in full view from the eastern end of the city.
