Hudson Athens Lighthouse Tour
Saturday, July 23, 11:30 am$20 – $30
Working with our partners at the Hudson Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society we are pleased to offer in depth lighthouse tours.
Tour dates from Hudson are Fourth Saturdays July 23rd, August 27th, September 24th, and October 22nd. Tours will leave from the Hudson City dock behind the Gazebo at the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park at 10:00, 11:30 and 1:00
The tour is an opportunity to learn about the important role that the Hudson River played in the development of the upper Hudson River Towns and the role that the Hudson-Athens lighthouse plays in the safe navigation of river transportation.
Our longer tour times will allow for visitors to have enough time to tour the lighthouse, watch the video on Hudson River history narrated by Emily Brunner, who lived on the lighthouse as a child and participated in tours until her early 90’s. There will also be an opportunity to see a video of the early founders of HALPS and the initial restoration of the lighthouse. Videos run on a continual loop and can be joined at any time.
