Overview

The Jerome Point Lighthouse was originally constructed in 1883 as a wooden, square, pyramidal tower of almost eleven meters with an attached dwelling. The lighthouse was rebuilt in 1956 without the attached dwelling.

By sea, the lighthouse is located on St. Peter’s Bay identifying the entrance to the St. Peter’s Canal National Historic Site that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Bras d’Or Lake inland sea by North America’s only tidal locks. By land, the lighthouse is located at the entrance of Battery Provincial Park on Hwy #4 at the St. Peter’s swing bridge. These landmarks are among the many sites and activities that attract visitors and long-term guests to the Village of St. Peter’s, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
