After a shipwreck off the northern tip of Grand Manan claimed 21 lives, the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly called for a lighthouse to be established on the island in 1857. Construction began two years later in the town of North Head, and on July 7th, 1860, the lantern at Swallowtail Lighthouse was first lit.
