Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses
We were founded in 2001 as a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation, and we are the stewards of two historic lighthouses near the mouth of the Piscataqua River: Whaleback Lighthouse in Kittery, Maine, and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in New Castle, New Hampshire. We invite you to join us in our mission to preserve these historic treasures. Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse (also known as Fort Point Lighthouse, New Castle Lighthouse and Fort Constitution Lighthouse) was first established in June 1771, making it the first light station north of Boston in the American colonies. Today's 48-foot tower was built in 1878.
