Shipwreck Point Lighthouse

Shipwreck Point Lighthouse

One could be forgiven for assuming that the Shipwreck Point Lighthouse was named because of the shipwrecks it prevented by warning sailors away from the dangerous point it overlooks but such is not the case. The Lighthouse is named from the word Naufrage (shipwreck in French) which early 18th century French settlers were the survivors of here and after literally picking up the pieces went on to found the settlement of French River. The original lighthouse built here was a boxy affair that saw service from 1913 until it was automated and replaced with the existing tower in the late 1950’s, you can still see the old house meters from the tower, today a family home.
