We learnt about the history of this on our coach trip. So after it finished we went to take a look and get a photo. The idea of the 3 sisters ..red one side and White on the other was to guide the sailors to harbour. If all red were in view they knew they were heading in the right direction, one or more out of view then they altered course accordingly.

This is a spot tht has historical significance to the town and its history. The tour busses point this out on its route but it is not a place most will stop to see. Honestly it is just a light pole with 3 lamps....nothing too special. the history behind it is easy to google and thats that.

We were in Saint John on a cruise ship port visit. Our ship was docked at the Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal. As we walked out the gate onto Water Street, we saw the 3 Sisters Lamp across the street.

The 3 Sisters Lamp was a navigation tool for ship captains to use as a reference when sailing into the harbor. If they could see all 3 red lamps, they knew they were heading in the right direction for the harbor. If they could only see 1 or 2 of the lamps, they knew to alter their ship's course.

Just below the lamp is a large Celtic Cross Monument dedicated to the Irish Immigrants who came to the area.
