Place Description

Overlooking Charlottetown harbour and the Northumberland Strait, the Blockhouse Lighthouse is a rare example of a combined keeper's residence and lighthouse in Prince Edward Island. It features a tapered three storey tower topped by a red lantern. The adjoining two storey square residence has a flat roof and verandah. Both are clad in wooden shingles and painted white.
