This book lists daily and weekly chores for the lighthouse keeper of the Montauk Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse is now automated but back in the day the oil torch had to be lit by hand. We’ve come a long way baby 🙂

The Montauk Point Lighthouse is located at the eastern most point on Long Island or as we Long Islander’s like to say “The End”.  It was completed on November 5th, 1796 and was the very first public works project in the new United States of America. Next stop east would be the UK.
