Tate House Museum image
Portland, ME
(range: 5 miles)
The house was constructed for Captain George Tate (1700-1794), who had arrived in the Colonies with his family around 1750. Captain Tate served as the Senior Mast Agent for the British Royal Navy, overseeing the cutting and shipping of white pines from Maine to England. His position bestowed upon him a prominent status in the community which is reflected in the style of architecture selected for this home. With its clapboards still unpainted, Tate House is one of two residences in Maine with an unusual subsumed dormer in the gambrel roof.  (This excerpt taken from the Tate House Museum website)

When visiting the promontory where the lighthouse is located you will notice the waves crashing over an unusual rock formation. They appear to be petrified wood, but is actually quartzite and dark grey phyllite accumulating in alternating layers. As you look out over Portland Harbor and Casco Bay you will have the opportunity to view an additional four lighthouse towers. To your left (North) is Spring Point Ledge Light – built in 1897 – a caisson style light station at the end of a rock breakwater. Directly in front of you is Ram Island Ledge light – constructed in 1905 – the beacon is now solar powered. During storms the waves have been seen to crash over the top of the lantern room. (This excerpt taken from the Portland Head Light website)
