Long Island Lighthouses; Past and Present

Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Fire Island Lighthouse

Presented by Robert Müller; President of the Long Island Chapter of the US Lighthouse Society

Long Island Lighthouses: Past and Present examines the history of more than 20 light stations over 200-plus years. It is based on Muller's 2004 book of the same name and his experience as a local lighthouse history researcher and preservationist. Images in the program range from the 1850s to the present and include lighthouse keepers, lightships, and lighthouses that no longer stand. Information includes personal stories about many of the personalities involved in this history.

Mr. Müller has been researching the history of our local lighthouses since 1998, having served as a volunteer at several of the area's lighthouses. He is currently a member of the Stepping Stones Lighthouse Preservation Committee. Mr. Müllerwas the founding President of the US Lighthouse Society's Long Island Chapter (2000-2005), a position resumed in August 2019, and a past President of the East Islip Historical Society.

Registration for the lecture is free although seasonal parking rates apply.
