In 1840, a lighthouse was completed at Presqu’ile Point. The designer of the 69-foot, octagonal structure was Nichol Hugh Baird. Originally constructed with limestone, the outside of the lighthouse started to crumble with exposure to the elements. In 1894, it was sheathed in a wood frame and then covered with cedar shakes. The light was converted to electricity from oil in 1935 and the attractive top cupola was removed by 1965 giving the lighthouse its current profile. Today, this lighthouse stands as the second oldest operating lighthouse on the north shore of Lake Ontario.
