History of the Neil's Harbour Lighthouse

Dennis Kent has sent some history on this lighthouse.

The first light was established here in 1899. 1922- 1941 it had a 4th Order Fresnel Lens. The local fire department opened an ice cream shop in the tower and the light is still operational.

Directions: From Neil's Harbour, follow Lighthouse Road east to the tower.View more Neil's Harbour Lighthouse pictures
