The Sodus Outer Light

 Outer Sodus Light 

            In 1834, piers were erected, and a beacon placed at the end.  A permenant beacon was installed in 1870, in conjuntion with the construction of the replacement lighthouse.  In 1901, the Lighthouse Board determined the pier beacon to be sufficient, and decommissioned the shore light.  The keeper's quarters remained in use by the US Coast Guard until 1984.
