The National Lighthouse Museum on Staten Island will host “Our American Lighthouses: 300 Years of Shining Brightly,” a program by lighthouse author and historian John T. (Jack) Graham on Sunday, June 11th.
Graham is a retired Pennsylvania state park manager, and is involved in operation and maintenance of historic sites to include colonial-era farms, grist mills, iron furnaces, and farmstead buildings. Since retirement in 2005, he and his wife have spent a part of each summer as docents at 17 different locations across the U.S. and Canada. He writes articles on lighthouse history, operation, and lore for both the Lighthouse Digest magazine, and for the Keeper’s Log magazine of the U.S. Lighthouse Society.
The National Lighthouse Museum is a museum in St. George, Staten Island, that is dedicated to the history of lighthouses and their keepers.
This program will begin at 2 pm and will begin with a short story about the perils of the sea and will then continue as an illustrated talk about regional lighthouses. A Q&A session will take place after the discussion.
Admission is $10 per person, $5 for museum members, and $5 for online viewing. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (718) 390-0040
