Canada’s tallest lighthouse, it soars 34.1 metres (112 feet) into the
air. With white marble walls over 2.1 metres (7 feet) thick at the
base and tapering to 0.9 metres (3 feet) at the top of the tower, it
stands on a foundation rooted 2.4 metres (8 feet) deep in the soil.
Its powerful light, perched 41.4 metres (136 feet) above the sea, has
guided ships without fail since the lighthouse was built. The site has
been developed to enhance this magnificent structure, which was
declared a national historic site in 1977 by the Historic Sites and
Monuments Board of Canada.
