Lighthouses on the north shore of Lake Superior have warded off ships for the past one hundred years, but now they have become a beacon to tourists.
Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior Inc. (CLLS) is an umbrella organization that represents a community movement to preserve, protect and promote public access.
As a member of the Ontario Historical Society CLLS’s duty is to provide public access to these unique heritage locations.
This past season the group has maintained three lighthouses leases in the region. Porphyry, Number Ten and Trowbridge Lighthouses are maintained by the group and provide a catalyst for other community groups, government departments and heritage users to engage with our incredibly beautiful area.
Restoring the navigational history and sharing the stories an important priority, as the majority of surplus lighthouses fall further into disrepair, time may run-out.
Become a member and support Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior; you’ll be actively helping the preservation of Canada’s Lake Superior Lighthouse heritage.
