John Quincy Adams commissioned the Pemaquid Point lighthouse in Bristol, Maine in 1827. The lighthouse was built that same year. Due to poor workmanship (salt water in the mortar mix), the lighthouse began to crumble and was replaced in 1835. Today, it’s a popular spot for photographers and sightseers.
