Marshall Point Light (4), Port Clyde, Maine USA
USA

Within walking distance to the fishing town of Port Clyde, Maine, stands the Marshall Point Light Station originally built to guide boats leaving and entering Port Clyde Harbor. The original light station was established in 1832 and the present lighthouse was built in 1857. It is a 9.4 meter (31 foot) white brick tower on a granite stone foundation. The light is 8.99 meters (29.5 feet) above sea level. The tower is accessible by an elevated, open wooden walkway which was originally enclosed.


The keeper’s house was built in 1989 to replace the original house which was destroyed by lightning. The lighthouse was manned until 1971 when it was automated. Today the Coast Guard maintains only the light and other navigational aids. The buildings are now owned by the Town of Saint George and the keeper’s house is operated as the Marshall Point Lighthouse Museum. The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.

The site gets its name from Samuel Marshall who sold the U.S. government four acres of land in 1831 for $120 to situate the lighthouse.  It is a popular tourist destination.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
