Graves Ledge was a menace to mariners from the earliest days of Puritan Boston, claiming untold vessels and lives until the building of the light.

In this online program, Historic New England hosts Dave and Lynn Waller, who began restoring Graves Light in 2013. Listen to the tale about this extreme engineering and construction project, which resulted in what some considered the finest lighthouse on the East Coast.

Blending period details with modern conveniences five miles offshore presented the Wallers with challenges, but their success merited a Boston Preservation Alliance Achievement Award.

Join Historic New England on a seaward journey with German spies, shipwrecks, nor’easters, and swinging '60s clandestine parties.

Presented in conjunction with the Boston Preservation Alliance.

This is an online program. A link for the program will be included in the order confirmation.
