Rear Range Light
A unique structure, the Kincardine Rear Range Light is built into the side of a hill adjacent to the Penetangore River.
Built in 1888 to guide the then active fishing fleet into the river and harbor. The range lights now provide guidance mostly to pleasure craft.
The octagonal, white frame tower sprouts from the top of the keepers dwelling. The lantern and trim are painted a bright red, making for a striking picture.
The front range light is a smaller structure located at the end of the wharf about ¼ miles in front of the rear light.
The best view of the rear range light is obtained from the marina and launch facility located across the river from the light. The marina is located on Huron Terrace Street. From Highway-21, take Kincardine Avenue to Gordon Street. Turn left on Gordon, then right on Huron Terrace Street.
