What's in Our Beacon Lore Lighthouse Newsletter?

Our main sections are:

Our Feature Story

We'll showcase an interesting narrative from the past. It may be...

Publicizing the latest News
  • An overview of the life of a Keeper, the Keeper as a human being, or a Keeper's family.
  • The account of a shipwreck and/or the lifesaving efforts surrounding that
  • An amusing or even a hauntingly scary item related to lighthouses - that may make you laugh or send chills down your spine!
  • Some unusual event in the "life" of a lighthouse
  • And so much more!

Our Lighthouse Patrol

We virtually patrol the world looking for interesting lighthouses to review for you, as a subscriber. Maybe you'd like to go visit them, or their location's surroundings. We can get you started to thinking about that. It may be an exotic location. Maybe difficult to reach? So of course, with Beacon Lore, you can just take a virtual, electronic visit to the one we feature each time! But the adventurous might even try a trip! Then you could tell us about it - we could include your experience here, if you'd like! Or it just may be one on your Lighthouse Go-To Life List - your "bucket list" as they say!

The Safety Net

Netting with a headline about lighthouse restoration

Those of us who love lighthouses, are so tuned in to their history and value. Thus we understand the need to take care of them. Because of their placement requirement, of course they're always faced with extreme conditions. They continually need our support and loving care. We can try to do what we can to help. We highlight a lighthouse who can use some of our help. And there are always multiple ways to do that - even by just visiting them!
