Welcome to the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum!

Thank you for your continued support of the Sodus Bay Historical Society/Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum. We look forward to resuming activities and to seeing you at the lighthouse in 2021, as we celebrate our historic Sodus Bay Lighthouse's Sesquicentennial! 


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.
