Marshall Point Lighthouse, Maine
In 1971 the decision was made to automate the lighthouse. The Fresnel lens was replaced with a modern plastic optic and the Keeper was removed. Also in 1971 the station was refurbished as a LORAN station after the interior of the Keepers house was remodeled. In 1980 the LORAN equipment was deemed ‘obsolete’ and the equipment was removed and the house boarded up.
