Old York’s popular winter lecture and dinner series, History. . . with a side of soup! continues with historian and photographer, Jeremy D’Entremont.

Explore the rich history of the lighthouses between Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and York, Maine—including Boon Island Light, Whaleback Light, Portsmouth Harbor Light, White Island (Isles of Shoals) Light, and Cape Neddick “Nubble” Light. Jeremy D’Entremont reveals the fascinating stories of lighthouse keepers and their families, and discusses the present-day preservation efforts for these maritime sentinels.

Jeremy D’Entremont has been photographing, researching, and writing about lighthouses for more than three decades. He is the author of more than 20 books on lighthouses and other maritime subjects, including The Lighthouse Handbook: New England, All About Nubble Light, and a four-volume set on the lighthouses of Maine. He is the founder and chairman of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, and president and historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation. He has lectured and narrated cruises all over New England and has appeared on national TV and radio speaking about his favorite subject. He also produces a podcast, Light Hearted, for the U.S. Lighthouse Society.

The lecture is followed immediately by a simple supper of soup and bread in Jefferds Tavern. Attendees are welcome to bring their own wine or beer.

Maine clam chowder is provided by the Maine Lobster Outlet, accompanied by bread from When Pigs Fly.
