PORT CLYDE — Marshall Point Lighthouse Museum had 19,623 visitors during the 2021 season, which ran from Memorial Day Weekend to October 11, Indigenous Peoples Day.

“This is a record number of visitors for a season and it is worthy to note that this number reflects only visitors from the US as most foreign visitors were precluded from visiting the United States,” said Marshall Point Museum, in a news release.

In keeping with CDC guidelines, masks were worn by all visitors to the museum.

“For those who know the beauty of the campus at Marshall Point, it is then no surprise to mention that Buick and LL Bean (twice) photographed scenes for their commercial use this past summer at this location,” said the Museum.

The museum was opened in 1990 while the current lighthouse was established in 1858. Also on the campus is a memorial to those St George fishermen lost at sea.
