Point Clark Lighthouse National Historic Site

Visitor Information

On the shores of Lake Huron, 35 km north of Goderich, Ontario, the Point Clark Lighthouse, built between 1855 and 1859, is a proud representative of an important system of “Imperial” lighthouses found primarily on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. This still-functioning limestone tower is topped by a 12-sided lantern that shines a light both on the waters of Lake Huron and on the historical significance of lighthouses to Great Lakes navigation. Nearby, the lightkeeper’s house museum illuminates both local history and the lives led by watchkeepers on lonely shores and gives visitors a chance to experience life on the Great Lakes in centuries past.
