Built in 1896, Braddock Point Lighthouse is actually west of Braddock Point in an area known as Bogus Point, named for its reputation as a known drop-off point for counterfeit smugglers coming across Lake Ontario from Canada.

When originally built, the 3.5 order Fresnel lens provided the brightest light on the entire lake with a range of more than 14 miles. The lighthouse was deactivated in 1954 and the upper two-thirds of the tower was removed by the Coast Guard in 1954 due to structural damage.

In 1999, the Coast Guard reactivated the light and today the lighthouse is privately owned, serving as an elegant bed-and-breakfast, restored to its late Victorian-era style. It is one of the very few privately owned, fully functioning lighthouses in the United States.
