Title: New England Lighthouses and The People Who Kept Them
Contact: ,
Description:

 

Everyone knows there's "something about lighthouses" that gives them broad appeal, but their vital role in our history and culture is little appreciated. Our early nation was built on maritime economy, and lighthouses were part of the system that made that possible. Due to automation, traditional lighthouse keeping is a way of life that has faded into the past. Jeremy D'Entremont tells the history of New England's historic and picturesque lighthouses primarily focusing on the colorful and dramatic stories of lighthouse keepers and their families.                                                                                This program is funded through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
