Dans un rapport du ministère de la Marine de 1870, John Harley, inspecteur des lumières du Nouveau-Brunswick, recommanda de placer un phare sur Cape Spencer, un promontoire bien en vue situé dans la baie de Fundy à environ neuf milles au sud-est de Saint John. Un contrat pour le phare de Cape Spencer fut attribué à MM. Clark et Stackhouse en 1871 et la structure résultante, construite sur le «Pas du cap» à plus de cent mètres au-dessus de la baie, fut éclairée pour la première fois le 15 juin 1873. Le phare en bois consistait en une tour carrée et pyramidale, qui mesurait une quinzaine de mètres de la base au sommet de la lanterne et qui abritait une demeure de gardien. L’actuelle tour circulaire en fibre de verre, avec sa moitié supérieure peinte en rouge et sa moitié inférieure peinte en blanc, est entrée en service en 1983, remplaçant une tour effilée à squelette érigée en 1971. Bien que la tour moderne et un bâtiment avec avertisseur de brouillard demeurent au cap Spencer, les vestiges de nombreuses vieilles fondations éparpillées dans la région attestent du fait qu’il s’agissait jadis d’une gare importante. Trois habitations de gardiens datant des années 1960 sont situées le long de la route juste avant d’atteindre le phare. Les deux à l’est de la route sont des résidences privées et restent en bon état, mais celle de l’autre côté de la route est abandonnée et est maintenant à peine visible parmi les aulnes.

Not a particularily historic lighthouse but the views and nature make up for it here. Mind the steep cliffs in front and the loose rocks though. Several people have fallen in the bay and at least 1 has died as a result of hiking down the trail in front to get closer to the ocean vista's...

Went there today, Aug. 25. So disappointed, the lighthouse is sprayed with graffiti, kids standing around drinking and smoking, didn't even get out of the car. Being a lover of lighthouses, it was so sad to see it in such an abandoned state. This lighthouse is crying out for attention. The area around it needs to be cleaned up as well.

The viewpoint at Cape Spencer is great. You can overlook the Bay of Fundy and also get to see the lighthouse. However, the lighthouse does have a lot of graffiti on it.

This was a scenic stop on our tour of St. John. It's very little hike down to the lighthouse but might be difficult to navigate for some people. It is not paved and was a bit muddy. The view of the water from the lighthouse is spectacular.
We didn't spend a long time here but it was worth going to.

This is a place needing desperate attention! Garbage bins need to be provided. Focus and money on this property would make the dividends worthwhile. A treasured spot of seascape beauty needs to be enhanced and not stripped and destroyed. This place shouts for some loving care. Tourists, visitors, New Brunswickers could have their spirits lifted if this jewel could be made to sparkle rather than being neglected and tarnished.

My wife grew up on this lonely point. Her Father was the Lighthouse Keeper. We love returning to this spot remembering the personal sacrifice a family would make to guide others safely home. Every lighthouse is a beautiful sight to those whose lives depended on them. This forlorn lighthouse brought safe passage home to generations of fisherman every night. The cottages at the top of the hill is where two families lived working in shifts to maintain this Lighthouse.

We made the trip out to this lighthouse and were totally disappointed. GPS had trouble locating it. Tried again using my iPhone and succeeded. Not what we expected. There is graffiti all over and getting a good photo was impossible

This is a great drive - feels like you are driving to the end of the world. Beautiful views, great photo ops.

Nice view of the ocean from this point but the cliffs are unstable so you have to watch out where you walk. You can see all you will be able to see in a short visit of an hour, not more. Nice spot to see the sunrise over the Bay of Fundy, sunset not so much.
