A view of Sambro Island Lighthouse off the entrance of Halifax Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada,in the Atlantic Ocean, showing the whole granite island.
The lighthouse is the oldest in North America, having been built in 1758.
It was declared a National Historic Site in 1937, marked by a plaque and cairn mounted beside the United Church in nearby Sambro Harbour. A $20 silver coin featuring the lighthouse was issued in 2004 by the Royal Canadian Mint. Canada Post announced a permanent stamp honouring the Sambro lighthouse in December 2007.
