Cape Spear Lighthouse

When the morning sun reaches the continent of North America, it first lights the cliffs of Cape Spear.

The site boasts a pair of lighthouses, the current operating lighthouse, and the original, which is now a museum.

Cape Spear Lighthouse

The original lighthouse was Newfoundland’s first and was erected in 1835, and was active until 1955.The museum is set up to show how the original keeper, James Cantwell would have lived with his family over 150 years ago.

Cape Spear is about 40 minutes drive from Newfoundland’s capital, St. John’s.
