An Unforgettable Video of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse

Posted by Sherry Rioux on May 17, 2017

The Nottawasaga Lighthouse is one of those iconic symbols of the Collingwood and Blue Mountain areas.  A local condo development, Lighthouse Point, gives not to it’s status.  Built in 1858, this lighthouse is one of the few original such structures remaining on the great lakes and sadly, it is crumbling.  This haunting video will give you a close-up view of the condition.

Thankfully, a group of citizens has come together to save the lighthouse with a mission statement that aims to “protect the important architectural and cultural significance which makes the Nottawasaga Island Lighthouse a significant part of Canada’s Great Lakes marine heritage for the benefit of all Canadians.”

Leading into this past winter, the group raised sufficient funds to shrink wrap the lighthouse to preserve it from further deterioration.  They continue to work hard to raise the needed funds to both preserve and restore this icon for generations to come.  It’s a worthy pursuit and I hope you’ll take a moment to have a look at their website to learn more and to see how you can help.
