Cape Forchu Lighthouse before De-Staffing in 1993
The Canadian Coast Guard Flag was flown below the Canadian Flag when lighthouses were staffed.
Cape Forchu is Nova Scotia's only intact lightstation open to the public. All the others have lost one or more keeper's houses and outbuildings.
 
The big keeper's house, built before 1940, is now a museum. As well as viewing artifacts and photographs you can enjoy delicious seafood chowder and a cup of tea or coffee. There is also a later keeper's  house which is now a gift shop.
