The Hudson-Athens Lighthouse was built in 1874 and is located in the middle of the Hudson River between the Village of Athens and the City of Hudson. The Lighthouse was built to guide ships safely down the Hudson River. It is still in service to this day.
Come hop aboard our 15-passenger "Little Spirit" and take a short ride to the Lighthouse where you will get the chance to take a tour inside by Emily Brunner, a woman who actually lived in the lighthouse in the 1930's and 1940's. She will tell stories about her life at the Lighthouse and her father who was the light-keeper.
