Cape Sable Lighthouse

At 101 feet, Cape Sable Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Nova Scotia and helps mark the southern tip of the province.

Eastern Infrastructure Inc. of Elmsdale spent six weeks during the fall of 2013, washing, patching, priming and applying an elastomeric coating to the lighthouse. The project was funded by Friends of the Cape Light, which raised more than $90,000 for the work, including a $50,000 contribution from the province. Paint was donated by Wilson's Home Hardware of Barrington Passage. Eastern Infrastructure has also painted the lighthouses at Cape Forchu in Nova Scotia and Cape Ray in Newfoundland.
