Encore: Women Lighthouse Keepers: Encore Virtual Talk by Historian Mary RasaWednesday June 23, 2021
Celebrate Lighthouse Week with Historian Mary Rasa
One of the first government career fields open to females, lighthouse keepers taught their wives and daughters how to tend the light, leading them to become the official or assistant keepers. This program will explore the US Lighthouse Service, and look at five remarkable women keepers, including one Monmouth County resident.
