Real Estate Gabriola Island, BC

The Gabriola Blog

I think this must be the most often photographed scene on (or from) Gabriola. The construction of the lighthouse was put out to tender in late 1874, the construction was plagued with problems, but was finally declared completed in Aril of 1876, established as a BC lighthouse on June 8, 1876 and first lit up on June 10. The first lighthouse keeper was John Kenny who lasted less than 6 months followed by Robert Gray who stayed on the job for 30 years.
