History

Located in Rochester, New York, the 40-foot sandstone octagonal Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse was built in 1822 and was in operation until 1881. Starting in 1829, (when the piers were constructed) the mouth of the port changed dramatically making a new location necessary. As a result, a new lighthouse was built on the west pier in 1884 and the lens was moved to the new location. The windows in the old lighthouse were eventually sealed with concrete slabs, and in 1965 the U.S. Coast Guard considered tearing it down.

A Local & National Treasure

When the local high school students rallied to save the Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse, it was named a City of Rochester Landmark in 1974 and was placed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. The lighthouse functions as a museum today and is the second oldest lighthouse on the Great Lakes.

 

The Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse Ornament is an ideal gift for any lighthouse collector. Tom Pollard Designs specializes in designing the finest gold-plated brass lighthouse ornaments.
