Product Description

Portland Breakwater Light (most commonly known as Bug Light) is a stunning 25-foot lighthouse located in South Portland, Maine. The first Portland Breakwater Light was built in 1855 at the end of the Portland Harbor breakwater to guide boaters in-and-out of the harbor. The breakwater was extended and in 1875 and a new lighthouse was built. The current lighthouse stands 25 feet tall and is made of curved cast-iron plates. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1943, but was restored in 1989 and reactivated in 2002. Currently, the lighthouse serves as a private aid to navigation in the US Coast Guard Light List and a town park (Bug Light Park) allows visitors to see the lighthouse up close.
