Providence Bay Lighthouse Sticker
Situated on a picturesque bay on the southern shore of Manitoulin Island, Providence Bay is known for having the best sand beach on the island.
Sadly the Providence Bay Lighthouse was automated in 1953, and just over twenty years later, on October 14, 1973, the old wooden lighthouse burned to the ground. According to some, the lighthouse was struck by lightning, but others claim the fire was set intentionally. A metal tower marks Providence Bay today, just a few steps from the foundation of the 1904 lighthouse.
The township of Central Manitoulin is having a replica of the old lighthouse built to pay respect to the history here.
The lighthouse was established at Providence bay, on the south-shore of Manitoulin island, lake Huron, was put in operation on the 27th July, 1904. It stood on the extremity of Providence point, the headland on the east side of the mouth of the bay. It is an octagonal wooden tower, with sloping sides, painted white, surmounted by an octagonal iron lantern, painted red. It is 42 feet high from its base to the top of the ventilator on the lantern. The light shown is a fixed white light, elevated 43 feet above the level of the lake and was erected under contract by M r. J. Candlish Kennedy, of Owen Sound.
