Maine Lighthouse Directory
Casco Bay Region

Guarding the entrance to Casco Bay and the surrounding islands, the lighthouses of the Greater Portland area continue to be valuable guides to navigation. This area includes Portland Head Light, perhaps one of the most famous and frequently photogaphed lighthouses in America.
