White River Light Station Presents Sentinel Between Two Lakes: Why Do Lighthouses Look Different From One Another?
Built to guide the lumber schooners and later the larger passenger ships into port, helping ships navigate the channel that connects Lake Michigan to White Lake, the White River Light Station has been shining bright for 146 years. On Tuesday, May 4th at 7pm, join Matt Varnum, curator of the White River Light Station & Museum, for a virtual presentation on the history of the White River Light Station. This presentation will take a look at why every lighthouse looks different from one another and why the signal their light shows is different as well. Mr. Varnum received a bachelor’s degree in History with a museum studies minor and holds a master’s degree in Public Administration from Central Michigan University. As the Sable Points Lighthouse Association curator of this wonderful maritime museum for the last 5 years, Matt will share his research as to why the White River Light Station and other lighthouses look the way they do and why their signals are different from each other.
