New England Lighthouses Lecture on March 7th

Please join us for our next Library Lecture on Wednesday, March 7th at 7:00 pm.

New England Lighthouses and the People Who Kept Them

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.

Jeremy D’Entremont has written more than a dozen books and 300 articles on lighthouse history and other maritime topics. He is the official historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation and the found of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses.

This lecture is kindly sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council
