Description: Built in 1833, Nine Mile Point Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses on the Great Lakes, but the title of oldest belongs to Gibraltar Point Lighthouse near Toronto, which was erected in 1808. Nine Mile Point Lighthouse was automated in 1978. Its fog horn was silenced in 1991, and the following year the two adjacent keeper's dwellings were sold off.
