Point Clark Lighthouse & Lightkeeper's Museum

Point Clark Lighthouse is a stunning national historic site that has been beautifully restored in keeping with its heritage architecture that was constructed 1855 to 1859 to warn sailors of a dangerous shoal 3 km offshore. The tower's elegant design and limestone walls are typical of only six "Imperial" style lighthouses found along the Great Lakes. It still serves as a navigational beacon that is automated, but the history of its lightkeepers is displayed inside the museum. Visitors can climb numerous flights of stairs to see the spectacular view from the light cupola. Guided tours explain the workings of the lighthouse as well as show a video of the complex restoration process that replaced several hundred stone blocks on the tower.

The adjacent Point Clark beach and boat launch make a perfect spot to picnic and enjoy the waterfront.
