This hexagonal limestone tower is located on Centre Island in Toronto's Inner Harbor. It was the second lighthouse built on the Great Lakes. At one time, the island was home to a baseball field from which Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run ... into the lake. Today the island is home to a beautiful park.
