Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse Historical Society


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 few years at the Lighthouse Society! Thanks to our growing family of Lighthouse members, 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 of a reproduction 4th Order Fresnel lens and period-appropriate pedestal for installation in the Tower’s lantern room.
