Tignish Run Lighthouse
Constructed in 1880 by Henry Williams and put in operation in 1881, the Tignish Run Lighthouse was located at the entrance of the Main Channel, cutting through a sandy beach at Jude’s Point. It was electrified in 1954. Operating as a back range light until 1989, it was then converted to a coastal lighthouse and decommissioned in 1997. It was in disrepair until 2009 when the Tignish Shore Community Improvement Committee relocated it to Fishermen’s Haven Park and refurbished it as a memorial to area fishermen lost at sea. Also known as Big Tignish or Jude’s Point Lighthouse, the tower is open seasonally.
