Sisters Island Light

Located in the St. Lawrence River, 12 miles northeast of Alexandria Bay, NY.

The light marks a small island in the river. The name "Sisters Island" comes from the fact that the original three small islands have been connect into one island by a breakwater.

The light tower is integral to the rear of the two-story cut stone dwelling.
