About the Event

At the heart of the rise of New York City and westward expansion into the interior of the continent, the iconic Hudson River was a transportation super highway long before automobiles were invented. Throughout it all, there were once dozens of lighthouses up and down the length of the river that kept watch and guarded the safety of the Hudson’s waterborne traffic.

Historian Scott Craven, will speak about the many past and present lighthouses on the Hudson River, discuss other navigational aids that were part of the U.S. Lighthouse Establishment's protection and what is in place today to keep commercial traffic flowing smoothly and recreation boaters’ safe.

There will be a Q&A after the program.
