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.
