Portland Head Light in Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine

There are over 150 lighthouses along 6,000 miles of New England’s coast. Ship’s navigation technology has made most of them obsolete. However, they are still busy as beacons to tourists with cameras. Maine has 66 lights. The oldest is Portland Head. It can be found in Williams Park. This is a suburb of Portland called Cape Elizabeth. George Washington commissioned the light in 1787. It began shining four years later.
