Northport, Prince Edward Island

Built: 1885

This still active 12 meter (39 foot) square tower with lantern and gallery has its lower 2/3 pyramidal shaped, and the upper third straight. Until 1970, this light served as the front range light. When the Old Northport Rear Range Light was decommissioned, this light became the rear range light. The current front range light is on a skeletal tower on a nearby wharf.
