New England Lighthouses and the People Who Kept them

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.


Jeremy D’Entremont is the author of more than 20 books and hundreds of articles on lighthouses and maritime history. He is the historian for the American Lighthouse Foundation, founder of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, and the historian for the U.S. Lighthouse Society. He has lectured and narrated cruises throughout New England, and he hosts the U.S. Lighthouse Society’s weekly podcast, “Light Hearted.” Jeremy emphasizes the rich human history of lighthouse keepers and their families in his presentations.

This program is in collaboration with the Ashland Public Library. It will be recorded and available to view on the Ashland Library’s YouTube Channel.
