The inner and outer lighthouses at Port Dalhousie were built to serve the navigational needs of the Second and Third Welland Canals at its Northern Terminus on Lake Ontario in the 19th Century. The Outer Light house was built in 1878 and the Inner Lighthouse was built in 1898. Today, they stand as the sentinel reminders of the community’s history and rich cultural heritage legacy-and provide an amazing backdrop to some the most beautiful sunsets in southern Ontario
