Hudson-Athens Lighthouse

1874 Lighthouse in the Majestic Hudson River.

Built in 1874, the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse is an architectural gem.  It’s one of the remaining 2 lighthouses that stands in the middle of the majestic Hudson River, between the towns of Athens and Hudson in New York.  Lightkeepers and their families have lived in the lighthouse until the 1960s.  Today, the lighthouse is a national treasure and is open to visitors in the summer, which includes boat transportation and tour.   

Experience scheduled Lighthouse Tours and Ferry Rides from June to October 2024, where passengers have the opportunity to immerse themselves in excerpts from Virginia Woolf's "To the Lighthouse."

Set sail on a literary voyage aboard the ferry, where passengers can bask in the splendor of the waterway while delving into the poetic prose of Virginia Woolf's "To the Lighthouse." This serene journey is enhanced by captivating narration, enveloping passengers in the soulful essence of the narrative amidst the tranquil backdrop of the serene waters.

The lighthouse is also available for private tours, photo shoots and events.

All of 2024 we will be celebrating our 150th Anniversary and will have special events throughout the year.  Contact Us for more info.
