Rose Blanche Lighthouse

Built in 1871 from a nearby granite quarry, this lighthouse stands as a proud sentinel of our shores. D & T Stevenson, lighthouse engineers from Edinburgh, Scotland, designed the original apparatus. This is the family of noted author Robert Louis Stevenson. The light currently on display is a sixth-order Fresnel lens that is one of 27 remaining lenses of this type.
