The Fire Island Lighthouse:  Long Island’s Welcoming Beacon presented by the Southold Historical Society at Peconic Landing

March 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Fire Island Lighthouse:  Long Island’s Welcoming Beacon presented by the Southold Historical Society

Saturday, March 3 at 2 PM | Peconic Landing Community Center | Free to all

Along with a selection of wonderful color photographs depicting the grandeur of the lighthouse, author Bill Bleyer charts the history of Long Island’s cherished Fire Island Lighthouse.

Book Review:

“Bill Bleyer, prize-winning staff writer for Newsday and life-long boater is clearly smitten with the lighthouse, and for years has written about it. Here, he lays out for the reader both its past and present, covering everything from the construction of the first lighthouse tower in 1826 to the current renovation of the second tower. A back of the book timeline lets readers track the changes in the lighthouse, while his interesting stories of the keepers and little-known facts make for an engaging narrative.” – Fire Island News
