The year 2013 marks the 140th anniversary of the construction of the Walton Lighthouse. For over 100 years the lighthouse stood as a Beacon of Hope guiding wooden sailing ships during the Golden Age of Sail 1830 – 1880 and steel hulled steamers through to the 1970s. The Walton Lighthouse is the last original lighthouse in Hants County.
