New England Lighthouses & The People Who Kept Them
Wednesday, May 17th, at 630pm
Jeremy D’Entremont has written more than 15 books and 300 articles on lighthouse history and other maritime topics. He is the official historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation and the founder of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses. D’Entremont has lectured and narrated cruises from Maine to California, and his photographs have appeared in many books and magazines. He is also editor of the website “New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide” at He emphasizes the rich human history of lighthouse keepers and their families in his presentations.

About the presentation –
Everyone knows that 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.
