Tour the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse, Sep 8


Join the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society (HALPS) as it hosts visits to the eight room Hudson – Athens Lighthouse that is listed on the National Historic Register.

Located in the middle of the Hudson River between the Village of Athens and the City of Hudson, the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse was built in 1874 to guide ships safely around the Middle Ground Flats. HALPS is the sole owner of the house, and is responsible for the restoration, maintenance, and preservation of the lighthouse. The lighthouse continues to be an active aid to navigation on the river.
