 Gabarus, NS    
Lighthouse accessible by car and a short, easy walk.
Description: During the summer of 2015, the National Trust of Canada and the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society teamed up to run a This Lighthouse Matters campaign to determine which of twenty-six eligible lighthouse projects in the province would receive part of $250,000 in cash prizes. Over 219,000 votes were cast from around the world to determine which nine projects would be funded. Gabarus Lighthouse came in second place with 21,403 votes and was awarded $50,000. This money was promptly use to move the endangered lighthouse back from the nearby eroding cliff.

In November 2015, a crew slid the 125-year-old lighthouse forty feet back from the cliff and placed it atop a new foundation. Building the foundation was a bit tricky, as each corner had to be a slightly different angle to match the lighthouse.

Location: Located on Harbour Point, along the south shore of Gabarus Bay.
Latitude: 45.843473
Longitude: -60.147346
