97 Forsythe Street, Oakville, ON L6K 3R7

Since 1837

Lighthouses, Sights and Landmarks, Township, Custom House, Old Post Office, Public Works Department, Lantern Room, Hexagonal Wooden Tower & Cylindrical Cement Tower

The cost of the lighthouse, a wooden, octagonal tower with a height of thirty-six feet came to £852 with William Chisholm paying for the £352 overrun

This lighthouse was originally located at the end of the east pier on 16 Mile Creek entering Lake Ontario. When it was decided that it should be replaced it was due to be destroyed. Members of The Oakville Yacht Squadron saved it and moved it by barge to its present location. The club members have maintained it since that time and it is often shown as an icon symbol of Oakville.

Very nice and well informed team at this museum. Its a small one but has a lot of unexpected history in an original heritage house. Lots of great items and stories. Its worth the extra time to take the guided tour to the upstairs for sure.
