Bear sightings

Please be advised that there have been black bear sightings in Point Clark. Here are some tips should you encounter a bear:  If you encounter a black bear stop what you are doing and evaluate the situation. Identify yourself by speaking in a calm, appeasing tone. Back away slowly, preferably in the direction you came. Walk, don’t run, and keep your eye on the bear so you can see how it will react. In most cases, the bear will flee.

Point Clark Lighthouse

After nearly 5 years of restoration, the Point Clark Lighthouse and Museum will be re-opening this June! Museum and Tour Hours Tours of the Lighthouse and Museum will commence in mid-June and run until Labour Day. It is open daily from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Weekend sunset group tours available by pre-booking. A grand re-opening celebration will be held in conjunction with the Canada Day festivities on June 27th. Be sure to return to Point Clark in August for the new two-day Lighthouse Festival.

History
The Point Clark Lighthouse is a National Historic Site and was one of the first ‘imperial towers’ to flash its light. Six of these majestic towers were built by John Brown on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay in the 1850s. Built of limestone from nearby Inverhuron, the Point Clark Lighthouse stands 26.5 metres (80 feet) high, featuring 112 steps to get to the top. The stone tower is topped by a 12-sided lantern framed in cast iron, with a domed roof. A bronze lion head at each angle of the eaves directs rainwater away from the tower. The light stands 87 feet from the base of the tower. In 2009, The Point Clark Lighthouse was honoured to be one of six lighthouses chosen from across Canada to decorate a postage stamp. The lighthouse was acquired by Parks Canada in 1967 to commemorate the vital role of lighthouses in navigation on the Great Lakes. The lightkeeper’s dwelling, built at the same time as the Lighthouse, is now operated as a museum by the Township of Huron-Kinloss.

Reconstruction
Over the past 5 years, the Lighthouse has undergone extensive reconstruction. Scaffolding and tarps have covered the Lighthouse Tower during the construction period, while workers replaced old, crumbling stones and installed new windows. To date over 300 stones have been replaced, the entire tower has been re-grouted and two coats of white-wash applied. If you are interested in learning more about the restoration, please visit the Lighthouse Museum to watch a video of the process.
