Join Bryan as he begins to go through some of the odd and wonderful videos that he dug up in the dusty old projection room.
In this week’s episode, Huronia Museum curator Jamie Hunter discusses the important role of lighthouses on Georgian Bay and showcases one of the museum’s most unique items, the Lonely Island Lighthouse fresnel.
In 1892 the wooden sailing vessel, the Lottie Wolf, was carrying a load of corn from Michigan to Collingwood and struck a shoal off Hope Island. The rock on which she struck is now known as Lottie Wolf Rock. The lighthouse keeper on Hope Island retrieved the nameplate. James Barry donated the nameplate to the museum for which we are very grateful.
