Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light was completed in 1902 and is owned by the City of Rockland, Maine.
The first light was an oil lamp placed in 1827 on a wooden tripod on Jameson Point, at the north end of the current breakwater. When the work was begun on the breakwater in 1881, the pole was relocated as the breakwater was extended SSE into the harbor. The breakwater was completed in 1899 and the present light and keepers' structure was finished in 1902.
In 1964 the lighthouse was automated. From 1973 to 1989 the Samoset Resort, located on Jameson Point, at the other end of the breakwater, maintained the lighthouse. They gave up the license to the lighthouse in 1989.
The Coast Guard refurbished, scraped and painted the structure inside and out in 1990. In 1999 ownership of the structure was transferred to the City of Rockland. Since then building has been maintained by volunteers, while the light itself remains the responsibility of the Coast Guard. In 2003 a float and boat ramp was added.
The light was added to the National Register of Historic Places as Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse on March 20, 1981.

Says one customer - "Comments .... The quality of the product I received was phenomenal and unexpected. For the price I paid, I expected a store-bought poster-quality print and received the equivalent of a 20" x 30" photograph. It ended up
making me feel bad about the relatively low-quality frame I had purchased for the print. Mike from IA"
