HRMM presents Seven Sentinels: Lighthouses of the Hudson River.

July 20 at 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Of the dozens of lighthouses and lights that once dotted the Hudson River, only seven remain. This iconic American river, at the heart of the rise of New York City and westward expansion into the interior of the continent, was also a transportation super highway long before automobiles were invented. Throughout it all, the lighthouses kept watch, guarding the safety of the Hudson’s waterborne traffic.

The Hudson River Maritime Museum’s concept for this film grew out of decades of Hudson River lighthouse interpretation, including research, exhibits, articles, short films and presentations. The film places the lighthouses in historic context, tells the fascinating stories of the buildings themselves and their keepers, and outlines how these seven have survived to the present day, and how to preserve them for generations to come.

Seven Sentinels is the story of the Hudson River’s seven remaining lighthouses, as told by the people interpreting and caring for them today.

Film commissioned & produced by Hudson River Maritime Museum

Directed by Jeff Mertz
