The Old Portage Lighthouse

This lighthouse formerly known as The Old Portage Island Lighthouse was built in 1869 and installed on Portage Island, at the mouth of the Miramichi River, 6 km from the coast of the village of Burnt Church. Although no longer used for navigation, this lighthouse is preserved as it was in its original location. In 1986, the New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine Center acquired it to redevelop it on its site.
