From 1826 until the middle of the 20th century, more than a
dozen lighthouses guided ships past its islands and shallows...
Kevin Woyce will explain why there were once 14 lighthouses on the Hudson, tell how seven were saved as historic landmarks, and describe the lives of the brave men and women who spent their lives tending the lights. His slide show includes original photography of Hudson River lighthouses, bridges, scenery, and landmarks, plus vintage maps and images of historic people and places, including some of the Hudson's "lost" lighthouses.
