c. 1955: from the Lakeshore website: In 1754, 2 lanterns and a wooden structure (known as the Lighthouse Cove Lighthouse) marked the exit of the Thames River into the southeastern part of Lake St. Clair; during the War of 1812 it was burned down by the American Army; it was rebuilt with local stone and manned by 3 generations of the (explorer) Jacques Cartier family from 1814-1950; currently, the lighthouse stands 53 feet high and electric lights have replaced the gas lanterns; the nearby lighthouse keeper's residence was built in the early 1800s and is currently occupied by the Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Team.
