Point Clark

To the east and the south of Ontario's Bruce Peninsula and surrounding islands stand a series of sentinels collectively known as the Imperial Towers. During the nineteenth century, the Canadian government hired Ontario contractor John Brown to build these lights to warn sailors away from ship-killing shoals and dangerous points along this stretch. Perhaps the most spectacular of the Imperial Towers, and the only one located on the mainland, is Point Clark Lighthouse. Completed in 1859, the whitewashed limestone tower soars eighty-seven feet above the aquamarine waters of Lake Huron on the stubby thumb of Point Clark. The Point Clark Lighthouse was declared a National Historic Site in 1967 and today an excellent maritime museum is located in the keeper's dwelling.
