I loved the name of this lighthouse, and the area is very pretty too. It has some interesting local history. The Heart’s Content light is located in Newfoundland, Canada. Built in 1901 at the northern entrance of the harbor, the cast iron tower is 30 feet high and painted red and white. Unfortunately, the keeper’s house was demolished with its other station buildings.
The nearby community of Heart’s Content, settled in 1677 as a fishing community, had the honor of being chosen as the terminus for the Trans-Atlantic telegraph cable by Cyrus West Field on July 27th, 1866. The museum brings summer visitors into the town to discover the history regarding the town’s role in furthering transatlantic communication. Let’s hope they visit the candy-cane lighthouse tower as well.
