Located at the northern end of Mt. Hope Bay, between Somerset and Fall River, Massachusetts, Borden Flats Lighthouse, circa 1881, still shines in all her glory, and is available for overnight stays to experience the role of an historic Lighthouse Keeper, through our Light Keepers Overnight Educational Program.
Our Light Keepers Program offers the public the ability to take part in a one-of-a-kind overnight experience, living the role of a 19th century Lighthouse Keeper.
With your role as an honorary Lighthouse Keeper, you will have the ability to become a living part of history in one of America's only offshore "sparkplug" lighthouses that is fully restored and made available to the public for a truly unique overnight experience.
Your Keeper stay serves as your contribution to the ongoing preservation of this historic landmark, which is proudly listed on the National Registry of Historic Places by the National Park Service.
We so look forward to having you as our
honorary Light Keepers!
We are extremely proud to have been featured in a story written by one of New England's foremost historians on New England Lighthouses,
Mr. Allan Wood.
We were blessed to have Allan and his wife experience a recent stay at our Lighthouse and he came away with such a memorable experience, he chose to write a truly interesting blog which can be found on his website, nelights.com, where he features his award-winning photography, historical lighthouse stories and is the best resource guide to discovering New England's coastal communities through its "beacons."
