Gibraltar Lighthouse Toronto | Ghost of Accident or Murder

Gibraltar Point Lighthouse – Toronto Island, Ontario, Canada

Standing watch over Toronto Harbour is Gibraltar Lighthouse.  Oldest remaining on all the Great Lakes, and the second oldest in Canada next to Sambro Island by Halifax.

But standing history isn’t always interesting. 

What gets noticed is a horrific legend around a former light-keeper named John Paul Radelmüller.  A man just trying to be kind.  But kindness led to death.

Was it an accident?  Or did drunken rage lead to murder?

But how many know the real history?  Forced into the violence because of the town she lived in.  Leading to a major act of bravery, and one of the reasons why we’re still Canada today.
