CLUES TO DISCOVERING THE TRAIN KEEPERS MYSTERY of THE JUPITER LIGHTHOUSE

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum invites the public to Tales from the Archives: The Keepers, Part 3, on Wednesday June 17th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The clues of recognizing a “mystery keeper” in an old photo of the Red Lighthouse in Jupiter, Florida has become so popular it now charms the wall of a building, at the corner of Center Street and Old Dixie Highway, along the railroad tracks.

Join Josh Liller, Museum Historian, as he explores all the prospects by linking some very enticing clues and possible answers to one of the longest lasting mysteries of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse: Who was the third keeper in the famous photo with Amour and Wells?  “Tales from the Archives: The Keepers, Part 3 ... will briefly examine the lives of those Keepers who served here from 1896 to 1919. Civil service reform came to the U.S. Lighthouse Service in 1898 and marked a noticeable change from mostly short-term one-and-done assistant keepers to mostly "career" keepers who worked multiple lighthouses over the span of several years or decades. “

 “Tales from the Archives is a year-round lecture series sharing artifacts and photos from the Loxahatchee River Historical Society's collection, and presenting the organization's latest research. The presentation is held in the Museum café and space is very limited, admission is free. RSVP is required, by calling 561-747-8380 ext. 101.”
