Newfoundland Lighthouses


Newfoundland has had lighthouses since 1813, when the first was built and operated by voluntary contribution at Fort Amherst at the mouth of St. John's Harbour.   A lighthouse still stands on that location, the third structure to exist there.   Other lighthouses were built after formation of the Lighthouse Board by the Commission Goverment in 1832.  Most of those, or their replacement structures still stand today.  I do not have an official listing of lighthouses in Newfoundland, but I have compiled a list of 37 of them.  Listed here are the ones that I have visited and photographed, most of them during our vacation to the Atlantic Provinces of Canada during the summer of 1998.
