• Marshall Point Lighthouse & Museum, Port Clyde, Maine

      Marshall Point Lighthouse is at the entrance to the harbor of Port Clyde. It was built in 1832. It is now owned and run by the town, with the light automated. Port Clyde once had saw mills, granite quarries, shipbuilding and a fish canning business. Now it attracts writers, artists and tourists. The lighthouse's claim to fame is that a scene from the movie "Forrest Gump" was filmed at the lighthouse in 1993. Also books about two lighthouse dogs- Nellie and Molly - are set at the lighthouse and Port Clyde and are sold here.

      If you go:
      The lighthouse grounds are open daily from sunrise to sunset. The museum is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day Fridays through Sundays; Saturdays and Sundays in May.
