Canada's first lighthouse, Louisbourg Cape Breton

The first Canadian lighthouse was built at Louisbourg, Cape Breton. The first lighthouse was built in 1734 but severely burned two years later. The next lighthouse was built with brick walls and a lead sheathed roof.

It rained at the Fortress of Louisbourg but the sun broke through the clouds by the time we drove over to the lighthouse.
