The Story of Two Lighthouses

On Long Island Sound, just off the north shore, there is a lighthouse that is almost identical to the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse. It is the Stepping Stone Lighthouse.

Today, the Preservation League of New York State published an article about the two lighthouses, both built in the 1870s, both listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and both cared for by not-for-profit organizations: "The Hudson Athens Lighthouse Has a Twin."

  1. This is a terrific story. They're cousins it seems, though they sit on the bottom in very different ways.
