A red and white building topped off with a red lantern is known as the Port George lighthouse in Port George, Nova Scotia in Canada that is located extremely close to the roadside. It overlooks the Bay of Fundy which can be a dangerous area at times for water vessels especially when the fog begins to thicken and the water becomes furious.The first lighthouse in Port George, Nova Scotia was in the 1880's that guided water vessels to safety and was one that was simple as a light was attached to a pole. In 1889, the first real lighthouse was erected on the Port George wharf but the lighthouse keeper would have to light the kerosene lantern every night and return in the early morning to blow it out.The wharf began to deteriorate around the 1930's and the Port George lighthouse was then moved up to the roadside location where it stands today. The only difference being is that electricity was finally available in the town of Port George, Nova Scotia in Canada and instead of a kerosene lantern, there is sensor electric bulb. This is a reliable source that makes the light from the Port George lighthouse shine everyday around dusk until the early morning hours.Recent updates have been made to the lighthouse and it is still a main point of interest for the community of Port George, Nova Scotia in Canada. The lighthouse itself stands at twenty-five high, but it is thirty-one feet above the water's edge adorned in the typical red and white lighthouse colors.Port George Lighthouse, Port George, Bay of Fundy, Evangeline Trail, Nova Scotia, Canada.
