Customs House, also known as the Old Customs House, is a historic customs house located at Sodus Point in Wayne County, New York. It is a 25 feet wide by 35 feet deep, two story, Italianate style brick structure with sandstone trim built in 1874. It was built originally as a bank building, then in 1885 was purchased by the Pennsylvania Railroad, who leased it to the U.S. government for use as a customs house and post office. Government use of the building ceased in 1968.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
