Welcome To The Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse

Thank you for your interest in the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse. During the summer of 2014, Phase One of our tower restoration was concluded. The lantern room was removed from the tower so that brickwork at the top of the tower could be completed. While the lantern room was on the ground, we took the opportunity to restore it as well. Due to the generosity of a private donor, a replica lens was purchased and placed in the tower. The lens was dedicated to John Ochs and Benjamin O’Brien, two founding members of the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse Historical Society.
