Photograph taken by renowned photographer James Blakeway. John Hancock first authorized construction of this 80-foot light in 1784. Delayed by insufficient funds, construction didn't begin until 1790. On January 10, 1791 , George Washington appointed its first keeper. Portland Head was Maine s first lighthouse and marks the states busiest harbor, boasting historic significance and beauty, which make it possibly the most visited lighthouse in America . Worthy of note, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the celebrated American poet, found the peaceful beauty of the lighthouse well suited to writing poetry, choosing to write here often.
