  • Cape Spear National Historic Site
    Cape Spear National Historic Site is situated at the most easterly point in North America. The cultural and natural history of this point is rich and continues to develop. Here, overlooking the North Atlantic, stands the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland, a Second World War coastal defence battery and the place where the Millennium first saw the light of dawn in North America.
    This provincial historic site was constructed in 1818 -1821. This gracious Georgian structure is located in the east end and served as the home and office of the Assistant Commissary General. Guides in period costumes are on hand to show visitors through the site which is restored, furnished and decorated to the 1830 time period.
