Today is the last day of our countdown of Hudson River lighthouse introductions in the lead up to Giving Tuesday, which is tomorrow! We're fundraising for our upcoming "Seven Sentinels: Lighthouses of the Hudson River" film this Giving Tuesday, so if you haven't donated, there's still time!
You can read a brief history of the Jeffrey's Hook Lighthouse, also known as the Little Red Lighthouse, on our Facebook or Instagram accounts, or you can join us in a re-watching of our very first, very homemade lighthouse film we made during the 2020 RiverWise voyage - the trip that started us on the road to Seven Sentinels!
If you want to know more about the Jeffrey's Hook Lighthouse, check out this past blog post about one of the first keepers.
Thankfully, we've got a real filmmaker on board for the Seven Sentinels film, so prepare yourself for some truly stunning modern footage of the last seven lighthouses on the Hudson River, combined with expert interviews, tours, and lots of historic photos and film footage. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out below!
We'll be dropping a new teaser trailer on December 20th, so stay tuned.
