    About historic Bug Light:
    Bug Light, officially known as Portland Breakwater Light, is one of two South Portland lighthouses, both of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Bug Light's design draws its inspiration from an ancient Greek monument, built in the 4th century BC. The cast-iron, cylindrical light has Corinthian columns and Greek roof edge adornments called palmettes. For more information about the lighthouse, go to: New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide.
