This lighthouse was built to replace the original 1836 structure that was destroyed by massive waves in 1886. In 1960, the Canadian Department of Transportation replaced the lighthouse with a modern steel structure, abandoning the original lighthouse. Members of the Oakville Yacht Squadron and concerned local residents salvaged the old lighthouse and moved it to its present location.
