Partridge Island Light

May 20, 2019

Located at the mouth of Saint John Harbor, Partridge Island was the site of the first lighthouse for the province of New Brunswick. The original was completed in 1791, but destroyed by fire in the early 1830’s. The replacement is what you see today.

The island was home to a quarantine and immigration stations, as well as coastal defenses. The light was automated in 1989 and now the island is a historic site, inaccessible to the public.
