Our Mission


The Mission of the Sodus Bay Historical Society

To tell the story of Sodus Bay

We do that by:

  • Actively maintaining a museum where we collect, preserve, and exhibit records, writings, historical items, and artifacts
  • Preserving and disseminating historic information about the Sodus Bay area
  • Maintaining a historic lighthouse.

SBHS Vision

Within 3-5 years, our work will have a strong regional focus, including Sodus Bay and the surrounding communities.  Our educational activities will involve presentations, speakers, videos, and both group gatherings and opportunities for individual learning.  We will serve both children and adults with both interactive and online education, as well as regularly changing museum displays with helpful docents available.  And, in addition to our historic lighthouse, we will feature a multi-use facility with revolving museum exhibits and a place for gatherings three seasons of the year, to support our educational and regional focus.
