Boblo Island Blockhouse and Lighthouse ~ Island History

Boblo Island Lighthouse

See living history in this fully restored 1839 blockhouse used during the Rebellion of 1837-1838. One of the remaining three blockhouses built, the blockhouse accommodated troops from Fort Malden, until 1851 and thereafter Enrolled Pensioners until 1859.

Just a stone throws way, is one of the oldest (1863) lighthouses on the Great Lakes. It has been designated a heritage lighthouse by Parks Canada. It is a national historic site largely due to its part of a brief occupation during the Rebellion of 1837-1838.

Blockhouse tours take place every Sunday 1pm to 5pm.
