Meet Sally Snowman, Keeper of Boston Light, Friday, August 5, 2022 • 6pm

Sally Snowman is the keeper of Boston Light, a post that dates back to 1716. She’s the last of her kind. Secluded on Little Brewster Island for weeks at a time, she’s watchman, caretaker, and historian.

Over the summer she’s eager to share her island’s history with the visitors who flock there and to impart a taste of the tranquility she’s found preserving this ancient lifestyle.
