Point Atkinson Lighthouse: Maintaining the Light

Creator(s): West Vancouver Museum and Archives

The Point Atkinson lighthouse has long been a focal point for mariners, tourists and local communities. The lighthouse at Point Atkinson was built in 1875 to protect Vancouver's growing international shipping trade. While the first keepers struggled with adapting to the isolated location and stayed only a few years, later keepers stayed for many decades.
