            Established in 1903, this white, bottle-shaped beacon pier light is one of two such lights on display along the Seaway Trail.  Constructed of boiler plate, it is about 30-feet high, and is distinguished by four cast-iron port windows and a curved iron door.  It was typically equipped with a sixth-order Fresnel Lens.

            In 1985, the light was deactivated and later moved to its present location, as part of the Dunkirk Historical Lighthouse and Veterens Park museum complex.
