Oswego Harbor West Pierhead Lighthouse, is located in New York at the mouth of Oswego River/Lake Ontario. Nearest City: OSWEGO (30 miles NW of Syracuse). Year Station Established: 1822

The Oswego US Coast Guard station is located about 750 feet behind the lighthouse. There are 5 breaker walls in the harbor of Oswego. The first 3 are connected over on the west side of Oswego...a person must start there to walk out to the lighthouse. These walls protect the harbor with the winds that come from the west, which are very strong at times. There are 2 other breaker walls that stand alone that protect the harbor from the winds comming from North/NorthEast.
