Name of creator
Grand Harbour Lighthouse, located at Fish Fluke Point, Ross Island, off Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, was built in 1874. Henry McLaughlin was the first keeper. Henry had been principal keeper at Gannet Rock from 1843 to 1853, a position taken up by his brother, Walter McLaughlin, who would remain there for twenty-six years before serving another eleven years at Southwest Head Lighthouse. The Lighthouse collapsed on November 19, 2013.
From 1914 to 1948 Harry McDowell and his wife, Sadie, kept the Grand Harbour Light. The keepers during the time period when this fonds was accumulated were Howard Napier Ingalls and Percy A. Harvey.
The lighthouse closed in 1963 and was replaced by a light on the Ingalls Head breakwater. It was heavily damaged by the Groundhog Day Gale in 1976. In May 1999 "Lighthouse Digest" declared Grand Harbour to be the most endangered lighthouse in North America. It has not been restored.
