Wolfe Island is the largest of the Thousand Islands. Because of its size (54 square miles), it is one of the only islands to have two lighthouses on it. To the north of the island, is Kingston and Ontario. To the south is the United States. The island is connected to both countries by ferries. There is a ferry to Kingston and Ontario. There is also a ferry to Cape Vincent in New York.
Wolfe Island officially became part of Canada in 1822. It was part of an agreement with the United States that traded Wolfe Island for Grande Island near Niagara Falls and a few small islands near Cornwall.
The information about each light house will be found on the related links for Knapp’s Point and Quebec’s Head.
