Not just a man’s job! Visit us at Cape Henry Lighthouse in the month of March as we talk about the important women who manned the lighthouse.

We will discuss Julia Harding, and Carrie Richardson who played important roles here at Cape Henry as well as other notable woman keepers like Margaret Novell and Ida Lewis.

Light Keeping was one of few jobs where women were paid equally to men and often times excelled alongside or past their male counterparts. Come learn about the life of a lighthouse keeper and the strong women who kept the light.

The Women of the Light Dune Talk is included in the price of general admission.
