Researching our Lighthouse and It’s Keepers As the Historian for the Huntington Lighthouse, my research takes me down all sorts of interesting pathways. The fun part is that you never know what strange or interesting facts you will uncover Our very first keeper of the Lloyd Harbor lighthouse, Abiathar Johnson was found listed in the 1850 census. His occupation is listed as ‘Coaster’ a term used for seamen who plied the local waters. In the 1870 census he’s an ‘Oyster and clam man’. He must have been successful in this pursuit because his name appears in the ‘ Long Islander’ newspaper as part of the board of directors of a ferry company transporting passengers from the Northport dock to Manhattan. We’ve also found a note in the ‘long Islander’ of November 28, 1884,that Neale Ward of Staten Island, went on duty at the Lloyd Neck Lighthouse. Less than a year later, Oct. 9, 1885 he was transferred to the Norwalk Lighthouse.. He remains a bit of a mystery, as we know nothing about him except for his name. Mr. Ward, in turn, was replaced by Robert McGlone. Mr. McGlone was born in Brooklyn in 1856 His obituary states that he was stationed at Easton’s Neck Lighthouse before coming to the Lloyd Neck Lighthouse. . He was appointed as acting light keeper for the Lloyd Harbor Lighthouse on September 26, 1885. On July 9, 1886 he receives his permanent appointment to this position. He serves at the old lighthouse and then continues at the new lighthouse until Jan 31, 1919. He, his wife and their five children lived in the original lighthouse. Although he is mentioned numerous times in the newspapers of the day, he seems well hidden in census records. He is not listed in 1890 or 1900 By the 1910 census, his family has split up, with only two children living with him. Much to my surprise, his name is listed as ‘Archie’ McGlone. in this document. Why Archie? Was that his middle name, and why did he suddenly use it? He died in mid February of 1919, just two weeks after his retirement.. We cannot talk about the history of our lighthouse without giving special mention to Augusta ‘Gussie’ Harrigan. In 1900 when Robert


McGlone’s wife died, Gussie came into his life as his housekeeper. While Robert McGlone worked in the lighthouse, Gussie took care of his children and did housekeeping chores. When Robert McGlone died in 1919, Gussie was allowed to live in the old lighthouse as a caretaker. She remained there until 1925 when she moved into ‘town.’ By this time all the McGlone children were grown and had left the ‘lighthouse.’ Did you know …. Lighthouse keepers were required to keep a ‘log’, a list of daily events. Each keeper had his own style. On the left side of this log was a day by day listing of the weather. On the right side, the keeper could write any ‘interesting’ happenings. It is here that we learn about visits by the supply boat and by inspectors, Some keepers recorded their daily maintenance routine which usually included some form of painting of the lighthouse. We are lucky to have a copy of the Keepers Log for the years 1874 to 1891. If you visit us, please ask to see a portion of it. Here are a few samples from 1889: Jan 31: Painted steps to lantern, Feb. 7 Harbor Frozen over Feb. 12 Whitewashed Kitchen (walls) Feb. 25 Painted kitchen floor. March 11 Lighthouse tender ‘John Rogers’ arrives with the inspector. Station inspected 5 PM. September 1895… “Application has been made for the digging of a deep channel through the western portion of Lloyd’s Harbor and the digging of a canal across the narrow neck of land that separates that body of water from Cold Spring Harbor.” July 19, 1902…. Robert McGlone, keeper of the Lloyd Harbor Lighthouse caught a shark, more than five feet long in his gill net that was set off the lighthouse? The pay for a light house keeper in 1901 was $600. (that works out to $11.60 a week) The original lighthouse of 1857 had only its light to warn boats of the dangerous low water and rocks in the area. It was not until the new lighthouse was built that a fog bell was added. The fog horn was not added until the 1940’s.

In 1857, a lighthouse was built on the tip of Lloyd Neck to assist ships in finding shelter in Lloyd Harbor. This first lighthouse, the Lloyd Harbor Light, did little to assist ships entering the adjoining Huntington Harbor. In 1912, a new lighthouse was constructed to serve both harbors. The Huntington Lighthouse, built in a unique Beaux Arts style, resembled a small castle and was the first poured reinforced concrete lighthouse built on the East Coast. The Huntington Lighthouse was manned by the U.S. Lighthouse Service from 1912-1939. It was then left vacant, but was supervised by U.S. Coast Guard. It was fully automated in 1949. The Huntington Lighthouse gradually began to deteriorate, and, in 1984 the Coast Guard, deciding it was too expensive to repair, considered demolishing it and replacing it with a steel tower. In 1985, local resident Janis Harrington founded Save Huntington’s Lighthouse, Inc. to preserve the lighthouse from demolition. The group is the first in the country to successfully take over and restore an offshore lighthouse. In 2003, The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society began offering tours of the Huntington Lighthouse, allowing the public to see the rich history and value of its preservation. It is the only offshore lighthouse on Long Island that is regularly open to the public. The Lighthouse Preservation Society needs to raise a minimum of $250,000 in order to receive matching funds from an approved grant by New York State. That will allow it $400,000 to complete much needed restoration work. The Huntington Lighthouse needs 650 tons of rip rap, which are three to five-ton boulders, to protect the concrete at its base and landing, which is being eroded away at high tide. The base is vulnerable to waves and heavy boat traffic in the harbor, as well as easterly storms. The rip rap will help keep the force of the waves from wearing away at the basic structure. The cost of the required rip rap is estimated at $350,000. The Huntington Lighthouse is available for corporate meetings and private gatherings for a donation. The space accommodates up to 50 guests.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Late 2011 to present has been a year of much excitement and celebration. We began celebrating our 100th Anniversary at the beginning of the year and haven’t stopped yet! We continued with our ongoing maintenance of the lighthouse but put our efforts into several fabulous new events to raise money and awareness. There have been many visiting professionals to look over our very serious foundation and Rip Rap issues. We took the time to step back and look over our beautiful lighthouse and analyze how far we have come and where we need to go in the next 5 years. We started hung our wreath a little earlier to coincide with the second Huntington Harbor Parade of Lights. It was a huge success and brought the festivities to many of our non-boating neighbors on land. Our Christmas wreath has become a tradition that must continue. In order for this to be a success we must thank several groups of people for this yearly event. First thanks to Martin Viette Nursery for greening the 12 foot frame donated by Sound Marine with beautiful fresh pine. Second, to the brave guys from the Huntington Harbormasters office who supply us with a warm boat to use as our transport, and who also supply most of the muscle with some of our volunteers and Mike from Seatow to get this 12 foot, 500lb wreath in place. Without them, we would not be able to give this present to the very lateseason boaters who pass the lighthouse so often. Another special person to thank is Adam Goldstein! For the past three years he has added


Christmas lights and a Chanukah Menorah in the window of the lighthouse. He figured out how to take regular 110 Christmas lights and re-wire them to work from a solar panel and a 12 volt battery! The darn lights stay lit from Thanksgiving until March! Our foundation and Rip-Rap Issues are more serious than ever. This year we were generously awarded a $250,000 MATCHING grant, which means that we will receive the grant if we, as a group, can raise the matching $250,000. As you can imagine, this is a daunting task! We are working diligently to raise the money but we need your help! Our tours are more popular than ever, with more people ‘visiting’ us each year. If you haven’t taken a tour of the lighthouse, there are two more tours this season. If you can’t make it, check our website at www.huntingtonlighthouse.org next spring and check the 2013 schedule. If you’re looking for a different Christmas present to give a boating friend, make sure to stop by before the tours end this season and pick up a sweatshirt or some Lighthouse Merchandise. Want a unique place to have a small party…The lighthouse is it! Your guests will never forget it! We don’t know how it happens, but every time we’ve needed some special help at the light, someone, as if by magic appears. Some of our saviours are the whole crew at Coneys Marine… whether it’s to lend us an extra fender for the dock, to help us with a boat when ours is out of commission, or to


take care of our boat in an emergency, they know when to appear with their magic touch. They are truly amazing. We can’t forget the Coast Guard who help us with some of the repairs and maintenance at the light. They’ve installed a better, brighter light for our little Castle on the Bay. We are sure you have seen it in your travels. Fund-raising is a necessary part of this labor of love. We have tried to make it fun but sometimes it doesn’t seem so! Every penny donated to the lighthouse, whether it be cash, buying a ticket to one of our events or purchasing a brick for our walkway, goes right back into the lighthouse. If you own a house on the water, you know what salt air can do to it. Now, imagine a house sitting totally surrounded by water with no one living in it to deal with the everyday problems. In early spring we check the lighthouse to see what damage mother nature has brought upon us. Over the past years we’ve noticed that the rip-rap, the rocks around the lighthouse, has moved. This is due partially to the bay freezing and thawing, and partially due to the wakes of passing boats. This past year, the rip-rap has moved enough that we can see damage to the concrete base of the lighthouse. Yes, it has been going on, undetected, for years, but now we can finally see it and it’s not pretty. The repairs will be costing many, many thousands of dollars that we do not yet have ($400,000 to be exact!). The frantic fund-raising continues. The history of the Huntington Harbor Lighthouse is not just the building, but also includes the men who were its keepers. Several years ago, we were in contact with a lady who is related to Abiatha Johnson, the second keeper of the old lighthouse. ( 1857 1869) This year we have been contacted by family members of Robert McGlone, keeper of both the old and the new lighthouse from 1888 to 1919, and of Arthur Bouder who served from January of 1936 to


March of 1938. Through these people we are able to fill in bits of information about our keepers. If you are related to any of our keepers, have photos of them, photos of the inside of the lighthouse prior to 1960, we would love to have copies, or better yet, hiresolution scans of them. If you’re not sure how to do this, we can do it for you. While giving tours, we speak of Robert McGlone and the other keepers as if we knew them, but as of now, we only have photos of one keeper, Marvin Burnham who served at the Lighthouse from March 31, 1919 to September 3, 1926. Check our website and Facebook pages to see what's happening!!

Question: What does a lighthouse need for its 100th birthday?

Answer: For 2,500 of its closest friends to give a gift of $100 to ensure that its light will shine on for another 100 years! Help The Huntington Lighthouse Live On Forever! Rip-RAp mAtching gRAnt fund The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society has been awarded a New York State Historic Preservation matching grant in the amount of $250,000 to help pay for seriously needed foundation repairs and reinforcement. It is imperative that additional rip-rap (granite stone) be placed at the base for protection from constant erosion, wave action and weather damage.

Help Pave the Way to Preservation. Don’t just sail by the Huntington Lighthouse, when you can literally pave the way to its preservation. ImmoRTALIzE YouR BuSINESS, ASSoCIATIoN, CLuB oR FAmILY NAmE IN SToNE AT THE BASE oF THE LIgHTHouSE if you’re a boater then you already know the importance of the Huntington lighthouse. This beacon, however, is more than just a navigational aid. Many local businesses and even the town consider it to be so significant that they have adopted its likeness as a proud symbol to represent them. For over 20 years, volunteers have physically and financially helped restore what years of neglect have done. This kind of support is continually needed to maintain the function and beauty of this historic landmark. That is why we ask for your help, too. You will not only be helping to maintain the lighthouse, but “preserving” your Business, association, club or Family Name in stone for generations to come. These pavers are not just cosmetic. When cemented in place, they will provide extra support to the base. What a wonderful gift or fitting memorial!
