Lighthouse at Point Traverse – Photo thanks to Laurie Gruer


There are 6 lighthouses on Lake Ontario in Prince Edward County. All of these lighthouses may be at risk of being lost. Some of them have been declared surplus by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). All of these lighthouses have heritage value and meet the Federal Government’s Criteria for Heritage Lighthouse Designation as well as the Ontario Government’s Criteria for Determining Cultural Heritage Value or Interest under the Ontario Heritage Act.
