Smithtown, NY - October 28, 2016 - Beginning with the construction of Montauk Point Light in 1796, lighthouses have aided vessels navigating Long Island’s waters for more than 200 years. But alongside their utilitarian purpose, the Island’s lighthouses have also become part of American culture. They inspire artists and writers, attract tourists, and are the subject of historic preservation efforts. From beacon to coastal icon, join Jonathan Olly, Ph.D. and Assistant Curator at the Long Island Museum as he explores the history of Long Island’s enduring lighthouses.
