Point Clark Lighthouse National Historic Site of Canada

Point Clark Lighthouse National Historic Site of Canada
Standing guard on the shores of Lake Huron, the Point Clark Lighthouse, built between 1855 and 1859, is part of an important system of “Imperial” lighthouses on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Visit the still-functioning 24 m/78 ft limestone tower to see the 12-sided lantern that shines a bright light on the historical significance of lighthouses to Great Lakes navigation. Nearby, the lightkeeper’s house museum illuminates the lives led on lonely shores. The Township of Huron has an agreement with Parks Canada to operate the lightkeeper's house as a local museum.
