DescriptionOlcott, NY was a port during the 1800's with two piers projecting out into Lake Ontario. In 1873, a square pyramidal lighthouse was constructed at the end of the west pier. The lighthouse served until 1930 when it was relocated to a local yacht club where it stood until approx. 1963 when it was dismantled, having been deemed not restorable. The present replica of the original light was built in 2003.
