Gilberts Cove, Nova Scotia

Just south of Digby on the 101 Highway, Gilbert’s Cove is located along the shoreline of St. Mary’s Bay. Situated on a point of cleared land is the Gilbert’s Cove Lighthouse. Built in 1904 with a square floor plan and centrally mounted lantern, this is one of only two known lighthouses of this style to remain. Tended by only two keepers over 68 years, both from the Melanson family, this light remained in active service until 1972. De-commissioned in 1984 and restored in 2004, today it operates as a small museum, gift shop and teahouse.
