About Us

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, Maine, on June 20, 1998.

Our mandate is to maintain the structure in good condition, restore and repair it as necessary, and to educate the public and allow access whenever possible. The Trust is the sole owner of the lighthouse tower and some surrounding land (all underwater). The U. S. Coast Guard retains responsibility for maintenance of the light and electronic fog signal as an active aid to navigation.
