History of the Long Point Causeway

Here is the chapter on the Causeway from the book "Down by the Bay", a history of the Long Point and Port Rowan area from 1799 to 1999. This excerpt is published with the kind permission of its editor, Sharon Hazen of Port Rowan.

The chapter explains how the present Long Point community was preserved for public use thanks to the foresight and actions of several Port Rowan residents who persuaded the Ontario government of the day to pass legislation that made its Crown Land on Long Point a public park. These same thoughtful citizens then lobbied the Province for funding and permission to construct a causeway from the mainland to Long Point to provide access to the beaches of Long Point.

Historical photos from Day on the Bay are included in the Photos and Maps section of this website.
