The first lighthouse at Amphitrite Point was built in 1906 after the tragic shipwreck of the Pass Of Melfort in 1905. Storm waves destroyed the small wooden lighthouse in 1914. Construction of the current structure began in January 1915 under extreme weather conditions. Men put in grueling 14-hour workdays, pulling 450-pound loads of materials from the lifeboat dock in Spring Cove through a quagmire of mud. After only 3 months the new bunker-like lighthouse was ready to withstand the forces of the seas.
