In early 1873 construction to build a lighthouse began on the Hudson River between the city of Hudson and Athens, New York. A blog dedicated to lighthouses "A Lovely Shore Breeze..." posted some interesting facts worth reading.
Open to the public, the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society runs boat trips and tours to the lighthouse during the summer through the fall on August 14th and September 11th and October 9th.
