Gilbert Point Lighthouse, ca. 1950

Gilbert Point Lighthouse, ca. 1950 

The Gilbert Point Lighthouse was established in 1904 on a prominent point near the village of Gilbert's Cove on the east side of St. Mary's Bay.

This was an "integral" lighthouse in the sense that the keeper and his family lived in the building housing the light, and the lantern room was accessible directly from within the house.

The light was discontinued ca. 1975, but the building has been restored and is now a tourist attraction.
