Join The Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse Historical Society

Membership Levels and Benefits:

Become a member of the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse Historical Society and help preserve and interpret America’s oldest surviving lighthouse on Lake Ontario for thousands of visitors who come to explore our site each year.

It’s been an amazing year at the Lighthouse Society!  Thanks to our growing family of Lighthouse members, this past year we were able to secure grants to:

    • Continue our restoration of the Keeper’s House south façade through restoration and preservation of the front door and sidelights, plus preservation of its stone entrance stairs.
    • Purchase a reproduction 4th Order Fresnel lens and period-appropriate pedestal for installation in the Tower’s lantern room.

Membership—in addition to free admission, priority registration, and members’ only special discounts—brings other benefits as well.  When you join at the supporting level, two admission passes so that you can bring your guests to tour the Lighthouse for free throughout our visitation season.  At the patron level you will receive admission passes and private picnic benefit.  (See the list of benefits for details.)

Join  now and help us carry forward the mission of the Lighthouse Society.
