The northern-most lighthouse on the Hudson River at Hudson-Athens rises from the river like a tiny gem. Hazards created by the Middle Ground Flats opposite the city of Hudson made navigation of this portion of the river risky. Built in 1874, the lighthouse is still an active aid to navigation. Designed as a family station, the lighthouse was home to the last civilian lightkeeper Emil Brunner (1932-1949) He lived and worked there with his wife and four children.
