As a precaution, a fence has been installed around the lighthouse to keep people from being too close to the tower, which is open to the public. The lighthouse keeper’s house is also open as a museum. The lighthouse located between Kincardine and Goderich on the shore of Lake Huron is one of the six “Imperial” style towers built in Canada and was completed in 1859.
