Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum Website »
Built in 1870, the Sodus Bay Lighthouse and attached keeper's dwelling are located on Lake Ontario's shore. Visitors can climb 56 steps to the top for panoramic views, learn about local and maritime history from exhibits, browse the gift shop, and stroll through beautiful gardens.
Exhibits describe the history of the Sodus Bay Lighthouse and surrounding area. A display about the War of 1812 explains the battle of Sodus Point. A replica of a steamship's first-class berth tells of a former age. One model outlines the never-constructed Sodus Canal.
