Have you ever heard of the Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine? If you haven’t then you came to the right place! This lighthouse was built in 1791 and it wasn’t rebuilt. The Portland Head Light was built out of stone with brick lining. Its height is 80 feet tall. The characteristic of the light is that it flashes white every four seconds. Portland Head Light was the first on the coast of Maine and the thirteenth on the Atlantic coast.
This lighthouse has a foghorn signal and the focal plane is 101 feet. The Portland Head Light is black and white and is a little tall with a great view! It’s also very wide and it looks like a tower of stone with a little tiny house at the very top! Well, that’s most about the Portland Head Light! Maybe you can find out even more! Bye!
