LEGENDARY LIGHTHOUSES Premieres on PBS

This series is about lighthouses, and the remarkably beautiful places where they are located. It offers viewers the opportunity to rediscover the romance and history of these fabled structures. The six one-hour programs visit remote locations such as Thomas Point Lighthouse in the Chesapeake Bay, the reef lights of Florida’s southern coast, California’s St. George’s Reef Lighthouse, the lighthouses of Washington’s Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands.

The programs also visit famous and historic locations, such as Boston Lighthouse on Little Brewster Island, the oldest lighthouse location in North America; San Diego’s Old Point Loma Lighthouse, the highest lighthouse in the nation; Ocracoke Lighthouse, located in the harbor that was once home to the infamous pirate Blackbeard; and Rhode Island’s Lime Rock Lighthouse, home to Ida Lewis, who became one of the most famous lighthouse keepers in America.

Funding for the series comes from public television stations. Corporate funding made possible by a grant from The Lighthouse Depot.
