Digby Pier Lighthouse

The lighthouse was originally located on Digby Pier in Nova Scotia. After the Digby ferry terminal was relocated in 1971, the pier fell into disrepair and the Digby Pier Lighthouse was decommissioned.

At sometime in the 1970s the tower was moved to the Saint John Coast Guard base, which had responsibility for all lighthouses in the Bay of Fundy. In 1983, the tower was  given to the city of Saint John to be part of the newly renovated Market Slip area.
