Woody Point (Barnes Point) Lighthouse

Barnes Point, also known as Woody Point, is situated along the eastern shore of Cumberland Basin, just south of Sackville, New Brunswick. In 1911, John A. Lea of Sackville was contracted to build a "27-foot high square wooden tower, with sloping sides, surmounted by a square wooden lantern" for $983.

The early keepers of the light also had the name Barnes, with C.W. Barnes serving as the first keeper, and Willard Barnes taking charge of the light in 1915.

After the Coast Guard deactivated the light in 1976, the tower was sold and relocated to Nova Scotia, where it was greatly modified and incorporated into a summer residence near Amherst Shore.

Keepers: C.W. Barnes (1911 1915), Willard Barnes (1915 at least 1923).
