The Oak Orchard Lighthouse Museum is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization provisionally chartered under the New York State Education Department, Board of Regents since November 2004 . This grass-roots, community fundraising effort relies solely on volunteers, fundraising revenue, and donations from the public for all phases of this project. Support has come from memberships, donations, grants, Buy-a-Brick program, and merchandise sales.
Monthly Meetings: The Board of Trustees of the Oak Orchard Lighthouse Museum meets at 6:30 PM on the third Wednesday of each month except December. Meetings are held at the Carlton Town Hall, 14341 Waterport Carlton Rd., and are open to the public. Please feel free to join us and don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or for more information.
