Abstract

Since 1990, there have been two volunteers at Seguin Island Light each summer, chosen from a pool of applicants to care for the lighthouse. Georgetown-based Friends of Seguin launched an effort to save the house and its outbuildings, which were slated to be abandoned with the Coast Guard's automation of the light. Lessley Anderson and Michael Murphy were chosen last summer, fresh out of college. Many of the caretakers have found that their lives have taken a new and unforeseen direction after a summer spent on the island, known as the foggiest light station on the East Coast. Anne Webster-Wallace, a realtor, and Pat Moffat, a lobsterman, started the preservation group working to save the lighthouse. The lighthouse has a rare Fresnel lens.
