The Goat Island Light Station was designed to help mariners find their way to sheltered Cape Porpoise Harbor. Built in 1833, this light station was one of the last to be automated. Secret service agents protecting President George H.W. Bush found it a convenient spot to watch over the Bush compound at Walker's Point. The light station is leased to the Kennebunk Conservation Trust, which is restoring it. You can view this light from the mainland at the Cape Porpoise Pier.
