Index

From the mouth of the Genesee River to the mouth of the Niagara River, there is not a port or harbour where a vessel drawing six feet or upwards can enter, the only boat harbour being Oak Orchard Creek, 35 miles W. of Rochester, and 52 miles E. of Niagara.

The entrance to this Creek is between two piers running N. and S. into 6 feet 6 in. water, and 160 feet wide. The west pier is 844 feet long, the east 734 feet ; the basin or pond within has plenty of water and is well secured.

There is no lighthouse or wharf light.
