Isle Haute Lighthouse, ca. 1955

Isle Haute Lighthouse, ca. 1955
Isle Haute (sometimes spelled Île Haute) is located about 7 km south-southwest of Cape Chignecto in the entrance to Minas Basin. It was named by the French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1604.

Its first lighthouse, seen here, was established in 1878. The keeper and his family were the island's only inhabitants. The old lighthouse was destroyed by fire in 1956 and relaced by a skeletal tower.
