The current Carleton Lighthouse is a 1994 replica of the original light which was built in 1911. The original light was destroyed by fire in 1970 and the local citizens had a replica built in 1994. The light, an 8 metre tall wooden structure, is not active. It is located on Pointe Tragadigache on Chaleur Bay just east of the town of Charleton-sur-Mer, Quebec on the South of the Gaspe Peninsula. The area surrounding the light has park and trails and is a great spot of walking or birdwatching. Photos were taken in October 2017.
