Kincardine

SKU: 101

Kincardine, located on the shores of Lake Huron at the mouth of the Penetangore River, is known for its sandy beaches, historic lighthouse, and the Bluewater Summer Playhouse.

 

The community was first named Penetangore (1848) after the river, and later in 1851 was named Kincardine after the Earl of Kincardine.

 

The Kincardine Lighthouse, featured in this design, was built in 1881 above the light keeper’s home, and is said to be haunted by a “Phantom Piper” who on summer evenings pipes down the sun.

 

First Nations, dating back over 10,000 years, including the Anishinabek (Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie) and Wendat inhabited this area. In Ojibwa, “Penetangore” means "river with sand on one side."
