Le Phare de Point Mississauga

The first lighthouse on the Great Lakes was built of stone at Point Mississauga in 1804 by John Symington, under orders from Lieutenant-Governor Peter Hunter. Demolished in 1814 to make room for this fort, its materials with debris from the ruined town of Niagara, were incorporated into this tower.

En 1804, John Symington, sur l'ordre du lieutenant-gouverneur Peter Hunter, construisit le premier phare des Grand lacs ? Point Mississauga. Ce phare, qui ?tait en pierre, fut d?moli en 1814 pour faire place ? ce fort. Les mat?riaux dont il ?tait fabriqu? et les d?bris de la ville du Niagara en ruines servirent ? ?riger la tour du fort Mississauga.
