Ladies of the Lighthouses

Speaker:  Bob Mackreth, Apostle Islands Historian

Summary:  For nearly a century, the lighthouses of the Apostle Islands served a dual purpose:   navigational beacons and family homes. Scores of women raised families at the light station, several gave birth out on the islands, many tended the lamps along with their husbands, and more than one performed acts of genuine heroism. Join historian Bob Mackreth for a close look at the women who rose to the challenges of life in this extraordinary environment.
