Oak Orchard Light was a lighthouse that operated on the shores of Lake Ontario, in New York, United States, at Point Breeze from 1871 to 1916. In 2010 a local community group built a historically accurate replica of the lighthouse near the original site on the east side of Oak Orchard Creek. Originally it had been built at the end of a long wooden pier on the west side.Further reading Oleszewski, Wes.

  • We were here for charter fishing on Saturday. Sunday we roamed around before we left. Lighthouse did not open until 1pm which was a bummer. Would have loved to see inside but we had a 4 hour drive...
