Built in 1897 in answer to a couple of companies? complaints about their ships running aground in the area, the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is known as today?s only caisson-style light house that is also accessible by land and is open to the public. Visitors can actually enter it during its annual Open House, in exchange for a small fee used to maintain and preserve the historic structure.

The Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse?s breakwater is also a popular summer spot for families who want to watch the boats, go fishing, or just enjoy the sights. Aside from that, it?s also a total tourist destination, with the Fort Preble and Southern Maine Community College being nearby.

Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is a part of the National Register of Historic Places since 1988.
