Campaign launched to rebuild Brockville-area lighthouse

BROCKVILLE — A $200,000 campaign to resurrect the Five Mile Lighthouse, consumed by flames after a lightning strike last summer, was launched yesterday (Feb. 15) at the Brockville Aquatarium — kicking off with a whopping $100,000 pledge from St. Lawrence Cruise Lines President Jason Clark.

The historic Cole Shoal lighthouse was located west of Brockville in the St. Lawrence River. It burned down July 25 last year.
