Hampstead Wharf Lighthouse is located at the Hampstead Wharf on the West shore of the Saint John River at Hampstead, New Brunswick. The wharf was constructed as a stopping place for steamboats that sailed on the river. The light was established in 1900 and the current tower was built in 1913. The light has been inactive for some years. Since 2000 the St. John River Society has maintained the lighthouse and it was restored in 2010. I formerly sat closer to the water's edge, but was moved back to prevent damage from the spring flooding. Photos were taken in March 2012.
