West Point Lighthouse Museum

About this Property

Height: 20.6 metres.
Climb the 72 stairs to experience breathtaking views from lantern deck.
West Point Lighthouse, constructed in 1875, was the first of the second generation lighthouses on Prince Edward Island. The reconstructed gable-roofed lighthouse keeper's house with lean-to storage provides an example common among lighthouses of this style.
Combining distinctive architecture, folklore, shipwrecks and dramatic scenery on the western entrance of the Northumberland Strait, the West Point Lighthouse began a second career as a lighthouse museum, country inn, restaurant and craft shop in 1984.
