Bring your lawn chair and join us for a free lecture on the lawn of the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse titled: “Stella Prince/The Lady Lighthouse Keeper – Fact or Fiction”, by Mary Korpi.

History tells us that Stella Maria Prince Terry was the only woman to serve as a lighthouse keeper at Horton Point Lighthouse in Southold.  But what do we
know about this dedicated woman who resisted society’s norms to perform what was then considered ‘men’s work’? How did her life differ from other women of
her day?  Come discover what is fact and what is fiction.

Rain date: July 3. Lecture begins 2pm.

Please note parking is available in the Southold Park District’s lot at Horton Point for a $5 fee if not a Park District resident.
