The Last Lightkeepers

If you have not already viewed these wonderful videos on Facebook, I encourage you to take a look. Documentary-style filmmaker Robert Apse follows modern-day keepers in New England including Jeremy D’Entremont at Portsmouth Harbor, NH; Ford Reiche at Halfway Rock, ME; Paul St. Germain at Thacher Island, MA; and Bob Trapani at Owls Head, ME. These beautiful videos are showcased with other New England topics at Wandergroove.com.

The first video in the lighthouse keeper series is below. The others will automatically follow. To see the full playlist, click the upper left corner.

Many thanks to filmmaker Robert Aspe and Marmoset for documenting stories of lighthouse preservation.
