Shadowland celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, the grand old lady of the Great Lakes. Located on Toronto Island, her story is one of light and dark, rescued and lost, sirens and spirits. She is the oldest stone building in Toronto, the oldest lighthouse on the Great Lakes, and is still haunted after all these years. (
