Our American Lighthouses: 300 Years of Shining Brightly
With John T. (Jack) Graham, Lighthouse Author and Historian
Sunday June 11, 2023 • 2pm
Mr. Graham is a retired Pennsylvania state park manager, always involved in operation and maintenance of historic sites to include colonial-era farms, grist mills, iron furnaces, and farmstead buildings. Since retirement in 2005, Mr. Graham and his wife have spent a part of each summer as docents at 17 different lighthouses 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.
This one-hour program will begin with a short story about the perils of the sea and will then continue as a well-illustrated trip down Lighthouse Lane. It includes over 200 photographs, with time for any questions or discussion afterwards.
