Inscription.  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow often walked from Portland to visit this Lighthouse. The Keepers were his friends and it is believed he sat here for inspiration for his poem "The Lighthouse"

"Sail on; Sail on ye stately ships;
And with your floating bridge
the ocean span;
Be mine to guard this light
from all eclipse
Be yours 1o bring man near
unto man."
