In a province known for its scenic lighthouses, the Oak Point Lighthouse stands out. Built in 1869, this tower is the highest light on the beautiful St. John River. At 14.6 m (48 ft.) high, for years it stood guard over the sometimes-treacherous waters of this magnificent river. Modern navigational tools mean this original, wooden, salt-shaker-style tower is no longer in use. Although the light has been removed, the Oak Point Lighthouse remains as a beacon from the past. Located just minutes away is Evandale, home of a historic riverboat hotel. This area boasts an actual cable ferry - a unique way to explore the lush beauty of the St. John River.
