The transfer of ownership took place in a public ceremony in Rockland, ME on June 20, 1998.

  • Looking from the parking lot you wouldn’t think the lighthouse was that far of a walk. But after navigating the strategically placed boulders it was worth the view up close. Even on an overcast day...  more »

  • We took our girls, 8 and 10 to the Lighthouse for the first time. We walked/hopped the rock-way out to the Lighthouse. It is always a beautiful sight! Definitely somewhere to stop if you're in the area!
  • An absolute must to sightsee and visit when in downtown Portland. Be warned the parking situation is a disaster as there’s like 4 spots total to park your car during the week (which is when we went) if you plan on visiting. There’s shared parking with the local municipality and school which means either get there early or have someone sit in the car and the other person walk to the lighthouse. The walk on the big stones was an experience to remember. We saw this light house from afar ok our ducks boat tour of downtown Portland and it was awesome to visit in person and see where we were pointing to from the ducks boat. Other than the parking it’s a great place to be, sit on the bench and enjoy the scenery or get some walking in all the way to the lighthouse and back.
