Come learn the secrets of the “Shipwrecks of Dead Man’s Cove,” during a fascinating mini lecture at the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse. Bring your lawn chair as lighthouse volunteer Ben Gonzalez shares the stories he uncovered while doing research for the “Dead Man’s Cove” exhibit.  Historically, the hidden boulders and the underwater sandbar were particularly troublesome and at times, perilous, for navigators on the Long Island Sound before Horton Point Lighthouse was operational. The stories of these shipwrecks are both fascinating and frightening. Rain date Sunday, July 25, 2021 at 2pm. Check under 'Events' at our website.
