Southern Head Light Tower

This is the historic Long Island Southern Head Light Tower as it stood on Souther' Head on the eastern side of Long Island for 104 years. The Canadian Coast Guard dismantled it in 2009 and took it off Southern head, replacing it with an automated, robotic light that is easier to maintain. The CCG has since returned the tower to the Long Island Heritage Society for restoration. It now sits at the ferry dock site in pieces waiting to be erected near the dock. The Town of Lushes Bight-Beaumont in conjunction with its Heritage Society will restore the Tower and will be a welcoming beacon for travellers as they cross Long Island Tickle on the ferry.
