Port Clyde, MaineFrom Wikipedia,
Port Clyde is the southernmost settlement on the St. George peninsula in central/coastal Maine and part of the town of St. George in Knox County, Maine, United States.

In the 19th century, Port Clyde became a busy port featuring granite quarries, tide mills for sawing timber, and shipbuilding and fish canning businesses. By the 20th century, the area attracted artists and writers.[1] The Country of the Pointed Firs was written by Sarah Orne Jewett in St. George.[2]

Port Clyde's harbor was originally known as Herring Gut.[3] Marshall Point – site of the Marshall Point Lighthouse– is Port Clyde's southernmost extremity. This lighthouse is the one to which Tom Hanks ran in the 1994 film Forrest Gump[4]
