Not much is known about this lighthouse. The best view is at the public boat launch just off of Limestone Drive in the City of Conneaut. I took this photo with a 1000mm telephoto lens. The light sits quite a ways out on the breakwater. The tower originally housed a lantern room, but was later removed.
Directions: To get there, get off I-90 at exit 241 and take Ohio Route 7 into Conneaut. Then follow Route 7, it will piggyback on Ohio Route 20 (take a right) and then a left onto Broad Street (still Ohio Route 7). At the end, it will turn into Limestone Drive. This is the marina where you can get decent pictures. You will definitely need a telephoto lens, a boat, or some really good hiking shoes to get a good picture. The light sits well out on the breakwater.View more Conneaut West Breakwater Lighthouse pictures
