At one time, the range light in Point Clark existed as a lantern hung in a coastal pine-tree. In the 1850′s, Point Clark was one of the “imperial towers” built by John Brown. Built of limestone from nearby Inverhuron, the Point Clark lighthouse stands 26.5 meters (80 feet) high.
Its shoreline location in a cozy beach community also makes it easily accessible. About 18 kms south of Kincardine, the lighthouse is open for tours during the summer. The light keeper’s quarters, built at the same time as the lighthouse, is now a museum operated by the Township of Huron-Kinloss.
Sturdy shoes and a head for heights are a must for the climb up the nine flights of stairs–a total of 114 steps–to the light room. The view from the top is spectacular and worth the climb!
Tours of the Lighthouse and Museum commence on June 29th and run until Labour Day.
It is open daily from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Special sunset tours are available on the Friday and Saturday evenings of Long Weekends from 8:00p.m. - 10:00p.m. Sunset tours are available other weekends through pre-booking.
