Marblehead Light: The Story of a New England Icon
by Bill Conly
Marblehead Light: The Story of a New England Icon required decades of research into the Light: its origins, its political history, and its physical qualities. The result is a richly illustrated history that includes over 90 historical paintings, drawings, maps, and photos organized in ten chapters that cover the evolution of the lighthouse structures and technology as well as the people who built and maintained it.
Marblehead Light: The Story of a New England Icon is published by the Town of Marblehead Historical Commission and will be available in early October for $19.99 from many local shops, including Arnould’s Gallery, Marblehead Museum and Abbot Hall Gift Shops. The book is now available online through Amazon.com at https://www.amazon.com/Marblehead-Light-Story-England-Icon/dp/0998987905
All profits from the sale of the book will be used by the Historical Commission to preserve and promote Marblehead’s unique history.
