LHS Program Series Begins Sept. 20 With Story Of The Fenwick Light

The Fenwick Island Lighthouse had been in operation for only a decade when William Edward Pepper was assigned as an assistant lighthouse keeper in 1869, a position he held for some 16 years. More than a century later his great-great-great-granddaughter, Winnie Lewes, would become president of the New Friends of the Fenwick Island Lighthouse, dedicated to maintaining and preserving this iconic landmark.

Tracy Lewis, her daughter and treasurer of the New Friends, will present “Fenwick Light - the Story of One of the Last Land-Based Lighthouses” at the Friday, Sept. 20 program of the Lewes Historical Society. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. at Lewes Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall.
