A stay at historic Lake Ontario lighthouse to be prize on Price is Right
Braddock Point Lighthouse - Hilton, NY
Completed in 1896, the complex included the Victorian-style keeper's house and the 110-foot, red brick, octagonal tower. The light was extinguished in 1954 and the upper two-thirds of the tower was removed due to extensive structural damage. The house has since been restored to its original beauty and the tower rebuilt. The U.S. Coast Guard relit the light in 1996.
