Beach Canal Lighthouse

Come and see the Beach Canal Light Station, which comprises a 17-metre tall (55-foot) tapered, circular, stone tower with an iron lantern, both completed in 1858, and an adjacent keeper's cottage built in 1857. The lighthouse, built by contractor John Brown, was modelled on the six imperial towers that he constructed on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.
