Several local businesses, Service Clubs, the Bruce County Museum, the Township of Lindsay and local families contributed time, money and historical articles for the development of a museum in the Lighthouse building. As well, the Lighthouse Tower was rebuilt and now functions as an observation tower. The adjacent Lightkeeper’s Cottage is occupied by a full time onsite manager who runs the day to day activities of the Lighthouse as well as supervising the “Lightkeeper’s Locker” gift shop located in the same building, and the "Shipwreck" Art Gallery located in the Fog Horn Building.
As a totally volunteer organization, all the funds for restoration, maintenance, and management comes from visitor donations, membership dues, the Assistant Lighthouse Keepers Program and sales from the gift shop and art studio.
The Lightstation is open 7 days a week from Victoria Day Weekend to Thanksgiving. Admission by donation only.
