Southern Head Light Tower

This is the historic Southern Head Light Tower at its original site on the eastern side of Long Island, where it stood for 104 years. The Canadian Coast guard has since, in 2009, replaced the tower with a smaller, easier to maintain automated robotic light at Souther' Head. The CCG has returned the tower to the Town of Lushes Bight-Beaumont's Heritage Society for restoration. It now sits in Long Tickle in pieces waiting to be put back together this spring. This beautiful tower will be erected on site near the Long Island ferry dock and will be a welcoming beacon to travellers as they come across the tickle on the ferry.
