Chunks of limestone rock falling off Ontario, Canada’s Point Clark Lighthouse are not expected to dampen or stop the 150th Anniversary Celebration of the lighthouse to take place this August 14 to 16.
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.
