History of the Niagara River Front Range Lighthouse

This is the front range light that was used to guide ships off of Lake Ontario and into the lower portion of the Niagara River. The lighthouse sits on the grounds of a private marina. I took this picture from the fence surrounding it.

Directions: From the QEW, take the Niagara Stone Road exit, and follow this north to the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. In the town, Niagara Stone Road will change names to Mississauga Road. Follow Mississauga Street to the end. Then make a right onto Queen Street. Follow Queen Street for two blocks, and make a left onto Gate Street. Follow Gate Street to the end which will be Front Street. Follow Front Street for about .6 miles. It will change names to Ricardo Street. You will see a marina on your left hand side. The lighthouse will be in the marina, but you can get pictures from Ricardo Street.
