‘Dutch Island Light’ booklet now available

“Keepers of the Dutch Island Light” by Rosemary Enright and Sue Maden, a booklet based on a three-part article that appeared in the Jamestown Press in October 2009, is now available at Baker’s Pharmacy, Conanicut Marine Services and Jamestown Designs.

“Keepers” tells the stories of the men who lived on Dutch Island and tended the lighthouse there between 1827 and 1947, when the light was automated. New pictures, references and a bibliography have been added to the original article.

Cost for the booklet is $4; profits benefit the Jamestown Historical Society.

The booklet is also available directly from the JHS and from the Dutch Island Lighthouse Society. Call 423-2674 or 423- 2167
