Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse of Rochester

At nearly two centuries old, this lighthouse is a genuine piece of history! Groups can climb the 40-foot tower’s 42 steps and 11-rung ladder to get incredible views of the surrounding area. Explore the Keeper’s House, which was built in 1863 and now houses a small museum with artifacts related to the lighthouse. Groups must be 7 years of age or older, and must be over 4 feet tall in order to tour the lighthouse.
