Event description

Description

Halfway Rock Light is located halfway between Cape Elizabeth and Cape Small four miles off the coast of Harpswell. In 1975, the keepers were removed for good and the light was automated.

The light tower stood alone until 2014 when Ford Reiche purchased the island and light tower at auction through the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act. Since then, Ford has worked tirelessly to rehabilitate and restore the keepers' quarters, boathouse and tower to its 1950's appearance.

Join Ford as he shares the history of the light station and the fascinating story of preserving this icon of the past to give it life for the future.
