Historic Lighthouses and Keepers of New Hampshire & Southern Maine

Presenter: Jeremy D'Entremont

Jeremy D'Entremont highlights the fascinating stories of the lighhouse keepers and their families who, beginning in 1771, mainainted the lighthouses between Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and York, Maine:  Portsmouth Harbor Light, Whaleback Light, White Island (Isles of Shoals) Light, Boon Island Light, and Cape Neddick "Nubble" Light. The histories of these lighthouses and their keepers reveal rich human interest stories and fascinating lore, from rescues and heroism to isolation and tragedy, and even ghost stories.  

Information about the present-day preservation efforts for these maritime sentinels is also discussed.
