These do not simply refer to their construction, but also to who used and operated them - the mariners, keepers and their families. The author tells this story focusing on those that belong to the stand on National Trust land.

Описание: A must-have book for the lighthouse enthusiast, maritime buff, and anyone who is interested in Massachusetts history, Massachusetts Lighthouses Past and Present describes the more than sixty lighthouse stations that have been found along the coast from Fall River in the south to Salisbury in the north, near the New Hampshire border. The lighthouse station locations are identified using navigational charts and their characteristics, including date established, tower structure, optics, fog signals, and many more significant topics are presented in a straightforward table format. A dozen or so lighthouses that no longer exist, and probably are not as well known, are also discussed. More than four hundred images, some more than 130 years old, show the original towers and stations and are accompanied by present-day photographs of these beacons. Numerous images show the insides of towers and lantern rooms not only in those open to the public for tours, but also in restricted or rarely visited lighthouses.
Описание: This unique reference guide covers all 822 lighthouses in the United States in a detailed, 28 page chart including where each lighthouse is located, when it was first lit, height and type, focal plane, the body of water served, current lens status, nearest town, and the lighthouse name.

Additional information covers lighthouses of all sizes, lightships, lighthouse lenses, lighthouse keepers, recycled lighthouses, and includes a resource guide providing links to various lighthouse societies and groups. Further, important information is included on how to volunteer to work with and help save Americas treasured lighthouses. This book will be a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in Americas lighthouses and her nautical history.
