Ogdensburg Harbor Lighthouse, New York
Ogdensburg Harbor was difficult for shipping to enter due to the numerous shoals and dangerous currents where the rivers meet. The U.S. government purchased a 1½ acre parcel of land at the mouth of the Oswegatchie River in 1834 to build a lighthouse to guide shipping into the busy port. Congress appropriated $5,000 for the construction project.
