Description
The first pier in Sodus was built in 1834 and marked with a stone beacon. A wood tower was added in 1872. In 1901, the Fresnel lens from the Sodus Point lighthouse was moved to the pierhead light. The present square steel tower was built in 1938.

The distant view shown was taken from the grounds of the Sodus Point lighthouse.
