Point Clark Lighthouse Turns 150

I was in Point Clark this past August. It was celebrating the 150th anniversary of the lighthouse located on the shore of Lake Huron. It was finished in 1859 and took two years to build. The lighthouse is 87 feet tall and is made of limestone. The light was lit for the first time on April 1st, 1859. The Point Clark lighthouse is one of six lighthouses on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. They are known as the Imperial Towers.
