Kincardine Lighthouse

Near the mouth of the Penetangore River is a historic lighthouse known as the Kincardine Lighthouse. It was built in 1881 above the light keeper’s home, standing 24.4 meters tall.

The tower has eight sides and is placed on a stone foundation. Back then, it was a safe harbour for shipping products. It serviced fishing and the local salt shipping industry and was a home for lumber and furniture companies.

Today, the tower and light keeper’s home have been transformed into a marine museum for the public.

Walker House

The Walker House, built in 1850, is Kincardine’s oldest building and is the oldest standing wooden hotel in Bruce & Grey Counties!

For over a hundred years, the Walker House was an inn and tavern, but a fire destroyed it in 1955. In 2008, the Walker House reopened as a museum and heritage center with the help of the Paddy Walker Heritage Society, which was formed in 1998 to restore the building. At the museum, visitors can view exhibits of the town’s local history, participate in heritage events, attend heritage speaker presentations, and book a tour around the museum! Recently, the staff has been hosting a cocktail bar called The Industry Room, and the cocktails are tasty!

Check out their website for events and if you want to rent the house for your private event.

Home Town of Andrew Malcolm

Andrew Malcolm was the founder of Andrew Malcolm Furniture Company. The beautiful, Canadian-made furniture was used in many Canadian Hotels.

In 1874 Malcolm moved to Lake Huron and formed a partnership with a young Scotsman, John Watson, who owned a furniture shop at Kincardine, Ontario. The company named Watson and Malcolm began producing furniture at Kincardine.

 

In 1897 Watson died. Andre Malcolm’s sons Andrew and James joined the business and became Andrew Malcolm Furniture Company. The furniture factory was based in Listowel, Ontario, from 1900.

In 1912 the company won the contract about which every furniture manufacturer dreamed: to supply furniture to the hotel chain owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway, beginning with the Banff Springs Hotel and the Hotel Vancouver.

Difficulty securing workers forced the Andrew Malcolm Furniture company to close in 1973.

In Kincardine, a street is named after him; Andrew Malcolm Drive.
