East Ironbound is an inhabited island located off the Aspotogan Peninsula in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, between St. Margarets Bay and Mahone Bay.[1]

The East Ironbound Combined Lighthouse and Dwelling is a registered historic place.[2]

Cultural influence[edit]

The island is the focal point of the novel Rockbound.[3]

In the summer of 1945 Jack L. Gray boarded with the Young family on the island and made many sketches of island life which subsequently were turned into large paintings.[citation needed]

Part of the film Deeply was filmed on East Ironbound.[citation needed]
