Gibraltar Point Lighthouse

Built in 1808, this is the oldest stone building in Toronto and the oldest surviving lighthouse on the Great Lakes. From its site on Gibraltar Point, it has watched most of Toronto’s history unfold. A lightkeeper was resident until 1958, when the lighthouse was decommissioned.

Toronto Islands History

The Toronto Islands were not always islands but actually a series of continuously moving sand-bars originating from Scarborough Bluffs and carried westward by Lake Ontario currents. Eroded stone of the Scarborough Bluffs was carried westward by Lake Ontario currents to create the islands.
