Horton Point Lighthouse Opens Memorial Day Weekend

If you are planning a visit to the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse be sure to check out the Whale House! This small building which originally stood as an oil house, holds some very unique artifacts, including a partial fin back whale skeleton. Volunteers Vivian Eyre & Robert Travis have worked with Amy Folk, our Manager of Collections, to reinvigorate the exhibit. We are also opening our seasonal exhibit "Keeping It Lit" which will feature the the Horton Point Lighthouse keepers. Be sure to visit both exhibits when the Lighthouse opens beginning May 25!
