Photo: Big Tub Lighthouse Tobermory

The first The Big Tub Lighthouse marks the entrance to the Big Tub Harbour near Tobermory on Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada.

Around the beginning of 1881, the first settlers of Tobermory used lanterns hung in a tree to guide ships through the treacherous passageways to Big Tub Harbour at night. In 1885, the Big Tub Lighthouse was erected at a height of 43 feet from the ground to the lantern.

A hexagonal wooden building we see today was erected in 1885. The Big Tub Lighthouse stands at a height of 43 feet from the ground to the lantern. It was fully automated in 1952.
