Fort Point Lighthouse and museum is located at the mouth of the La Have River just south of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada near the Village of Liverpool, NS.

Along with the help of deMonts, they built a fort that defended the town and the trading routes during the 18th Century. From the lighthouse, looking out across Liverpool Harbour, one can see the Coffin Island Lighthouse.
