The first lighthouse was an octagonal wood tower built in 1832, 21 meters (69ft) high. It had a round iron lantern and a 3rd order double bullseye lens manufactured in France. This lighthouse was replaced in 1936 by the current concrete tower, but the original lantern and lens were retained. It has the only remaining circular lantern in Nova Scotia.
