Sodus Bay Lighthouse Garden Walks
A team of volunteers, led by Sue Williamson, dedicate their time, energy, and creativity in maintaining the beautiful Sodus Bay Lighthouse Gardens. Every summer the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Gardening Crew assures all the plants, flowers, and shrubbery provide a welcoming walk for all who come to enjoy the lighthouse and the scenic view of Lake Ontario from this historic site. Enjoy this delightful video by Tom Lightfoot about the history and care of these wonderful grounds.
Our Online Museum Store is open all year.
Through a true community effort,
the Sodus Bay Historical Society opened the doors of the
Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum on July 4, 1985.
Thirty-five years later, we are now the most frequently visited attraction in Wayne County, New York, receiving over 20,000 visitors from all over the world each year!
Plan a visit to our beautiful and historic lighthouse, volunteer to help us in the museum, join us as a member, or donate to our efforts to save this treasured building.
