Ladies of the Lighthouses

March 17

1:00 Lowell Township Hall 

Enjoy an afternoon tea with lighthouse historian Dianna Stampfler.

Meet the ladies who kept the lights burning at beacons throughout Michigan. They were women before their time, taking on the dangerous and difficult job of tending to the beacons that protected the shores of the Great Lakes State.

In all, nearly 40 women have been found who excelled in this profession.

Nearly 50 images have been collected (of keepers, their lights and their families). The program also includes readings from journals, logs and autobiographies from these women.

Hosted by the Lowell Area Historical Museum and the Friends of the Englehardt Library.

Event will be held at the Lowell Township Hall (2910 Alden Nash Ave Se.) 1:00pm

Admission is free.
