Grand Bank Lighthouse

per person

In 1881, a lens, lamp, and a lantern were delivered to Grand Bank to be used atop a lighthouse planned for the breakwater, but the lighthouse was not established until May 1, 1890, when it started displaying a white light from an eighth-order dioptric lens.

Soon thereafter, the light was changed to red as the white light “could scarcely be distinguished from the house lights” nearby. Grand Bank Lighthouse was described in 1891 as a wooden beacon, painted in red and white horizontal bands that stood ninety-one metres from the end of the breakwater. Josiah Hiscock served as the first keeper of the light.
