Overview

Henry Hudson explored the river that now bears his name in 1609. The arrival of the steamboat 200 years later, and the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, made the Hudson one of America's busiest rivers. From 1826 until the middle of the 20th century, more than a dozen lighthouses guided ships past its islands and shallows.

HUDSON RIVER LIGHTHOUSES & HISTORY is an illustrated tour of these lights, past and present, and of the river they marked--from its Revolutionary War battlefields and early industries to modern-day cities, bridges, and parks.

Includes more than 3 dozen original black and white photographs of Hudson River lighthouses, bridges, and historic landmarks.

Author and photographer Kevin Woyce lives in Lyndhurst, NJ. His first book, JERSEY SHORE FACTS & PHOTOS was published in 2007.
