Come learn the wonderful true story of Abbie Burgess, Keeper of Matinicus Rock Lighthouse, Maine. In the winter of 1856, Abbie?��s father went ashore for supplies, only to be trapped on the mainland for four weeks by a coastal storm. Abbie, then only seventeen, kept the lights burning despite knee-deep flooding and wild seas, all the while caring for her sick mother and her younger sisters. Families are invited to watch ?��Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie,?�� browse our many lighthouse children?��s books, check out the museum?��s lighthouse models, and make their own Paper Lighthouse Models to take home.

For more information, please contact Victoria Stevens at 781-925-5433 or [email protected]. The museum is located in the historic 1889 Point Allerton U.S. Lifesaving Station at 1117 Nantasket Avenue, Hull, MA
