Restoration work on the lighthouse has passed the half-way point. Forming for the placement of new concrete is well under way, to be followed by the window installation and a final coat of paint. The scaffolding is scheduled to start coming down within a month revealing the finished product. We’ll keep you posted on the progress.

I am a freelance writer on assignment. I am looking for how visitors can schedule a tour of the light house.
Thanks for your info, Stacey
Great idea the blog is. Where’s the categories, stories and links for the Canadian Motor Speedway Project? I can provide information and links if you like. I’m thinking it’s a pretty big deal for this dead town and should be blogworthy. Thanks!
The Point Abino Lightstation Preservation Association volunteers run the tours starting in June through to September. I don’t think the Town has determined the tour dates yet. Phone 905 871 1600 ext. 2431 to book ahead.

The lighthouse is in a Classical Revival style, a very unique landmark in Canada.
