Hudson River Lighthouses
Saturday, April 27, 2019
Scott Craven of North River History will give a presentation on the “Lighthouses of the North River.” Mr. Craven provides information on the history of the lighthouses still in existence as well as the ones that are long gone. He will tell how they have protected the river and kept commercial traffic flowing smoothly and recreational boaters safe.
The “North River” was renamed the “Hudson River” in 1909 in Honor of the 300th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s historic voyage up the “North River” in 1609, but it’s still named the “North River” on navigation charts around Manhattan. . . .
Scott’s presentation will be held in the Community Room of the Trinity Episcopal Church located at 1200 Main Street, Fishkill.
The presentation starts at 1:00 PM.
Light refreshments will be provided.
