WORTH NOTING Book sheds new light on lighthouse

A new book by Don Bayles, ‘Horton Point Lighthouse and Nautical Museum,’ provides a thorough history of Southold’s venerable Soundfront beacon and those who have served as its keepers since 1857. The book also describes various exhibits on display at the museum, which occupies the keeper’s quarters below the light and is run by the Southold Historical Soicety.

The author will be on hand at the lighthouse Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 4 and 5, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. to sign copies of his well-researched book, discuss the light’s history and answer questions.
