USLHS Historian Video #4 – The Storm Child at Boston Light

Boston Light Station on Little Brewster Island in Boston Harbor, Massachusetts, was the site of the first lighthouse on the North American continent (1716). No child was born on the island until 1932, when a daughter was born to Josephine and Assistant Keeper Ralph Norwood.

This is their unusual story, which was the inspiration for a popular book.
