Stop At: Covehead Harbour Lighthouse, Gulf Shore Parkway & Wharf Road, Stanhope, Prince Edward Island C0A 1P0 Canada

The Covehead Harbour Lighthouse is a heritage lighthouse because of its historical, architectural, and community values.

Historical values
The Covehead Harbour Lighthouse is a very good example of the socio-economic development of Queens County. The current lighthouse and its predecessor have been important to the local fishing community and to recreational boaters as a guiding light to the entrance of Covehead Bay. The current lighthouse is an important symbol of the island’s maritime heritage as one of the most photographed lighthouses in Prince Edward Island.

Architectural values
The Covehead Harbour Lighthouse is an excellent example of a well-proportioned square tapered tower that exhibits a classical aesthetic. Added features, such as stylized brackets, the maple leaf on the lantern and the contrasting corner boards, combined with the innovative design, support its attractiveness. It is one of a number of square tapered wooden towers in Prince Edward Island, favoured because they were economical to construct and easy to maintain.
