Lecture: ‘Lighthouses of the Hudson’
Saturday, February 15, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Illustrated lecture along the Hudson River by Bob Taylor, presented in collaboration with the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society.
Expert Lighthouse Historian Bob Taylor will deliver an illustrated slide show of Lighthouses along the Hudson River, beginning with the Statue of Liberty and continuing up the Hudson to Lake Champlain.
The lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer conversation.
Bob Taylor’s involvement with the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society (HALPS) goes back to 2002 and his hobby for more than two decades has been visiting, climbing and photographing lighthouses. He has traveled throughout the United States including the Great Lakes, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and abroad looking at lighthouses and photographing them, most often on group tours. To-date he has photographed more than 1,200 lighthouses.
Mr. Taylor will speak about the lighthouses on the Hudson River today from the Statue of Liberty going up through the Champlain Canal to Lake George.
