About This Project Idea

BATTERY POINT LIGHTHOUSE

Our Project Regenerates a Heritage Property

  • The first lighthouse was built on the land at Battery Point in 1864.
  • In 1937 a new breakwater was constructed together with the first light and bell near the end of the breakwater.
  • The present lighthouse was built at the western end of the breakwater in 1951.
  • “Saving it represents a rejuvenation of a previous generation.” Captain Dan Moreland, Master of the tall ship Picton Castle.
  • “It is a lighthouse of a heritage community, an icon to our past.” Rachel Bailey, Mayor of Lunenburg.
