The Hudson River Maritime Museum is grateful for support from the Hudson Valley Greenway’s Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area program. HRMM has received a Heritage Development Grant of $5,400 from the program to support the revival of the Hudson River Lighthouse Coalition - a partnership between HRMM and the organizations that operate the seven remaining lighthouses on the Hudson River.
The grant covers the development of a joint website for all the Hudson River lighthouses, a promotional rack card, and an online exhibit about the lost or “ghost” lighthouses of the Hudson River. Preliminary information, including basic history, images, and tourism information for all seven lighthouses plus the Statue of Liberty will be available at www.hudsonriverlighthouses.org by the end of June, 2018. Online exhibit will be available to the public by October, 2018.
In addition, HRMM has received sponsorship from the HRVNHA for the Conference on Black History in the Hudson Valley, July 14, 2018. The $1,000 sponsorship goes to offset costs and keep registration costs affordable for the general public.
Please join us in thanking the Hudson Valley Greenway and the Hudson River National Heritage Area program for their generous support.
