Sand Point Lighthouse, Kingston Penninsula, New Brunswick

Elevated Sand Point Lighthouse, the tallest of the Saint John River lights, is located on the East side of the Saint John River on the Kingston Penninsula and just South of Harding Point where the ferry crosses the river from the community of Grand Bay/Westfield. The site was established in 1869 and the current light is from 1898 but has been refurbished several times. The tower is elevated to prevent damage from the spring flooding that affects many of the other Saint John River lights. Photos taken in March 2012.
