200 Years of Lighthouse History with Michael Pittavino

200 Years of Lighthouse History with Michael Pittavino

In 1822, the newly constructed Oswego Harbor Lighthouse’s beacon was lit, ushering in 200 years of lighthouse history in Oswego, NY.  In celebration of that bicentennial, the H. Lee White Maritime Museum at Oswego is pleased to host “Oswego’s 200 Years of Lighthouse History” featuring museum curator Michael Pittavino as part of its History Lecture Series.  Join us on Saturday, September 17th at 1:30pm as Pittavino details the developments that led to the construction of four iconic lighthouses in Oswego Harbor.  
Michael Pittavino has served as the curator of the H. Lee White Maritime Museum since 2015, is a coauthor of Lighthouses and Life Saving at Oswego, and formerly served as a member of the City of Oswego’s Lighthouse Development Committee.  Pittavino will provide a historical overview of Oswego’s lighthouses as they relate to the development of Oswego Harbor as well as an update on the restoration and preservation of Oswego’s most recognizable structure – the Oswego West Pierhead Lighthouse.   
The H. Lee White Maritime Museum’s History Lecture Series is a free program, open to the public.  The Maritime Museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open daily, 1-5 pm (10-5 in July & August) and are located on the West First Street Pier in Oswego’s Historic Maritime District.  For more information regarding this or other Museum programs, contact the Museum at 315-342-0480, or visit
