Lots of people like lighthouses, but Jeremy D’Entremont has taken his appreciation of these maritime icons to a different level. A noted writer, lecturer and historian, D’Entremont is a font of fascinating lighthouse lore, as I discovered during a recent conversation with him.

“I’ve always been interested in New England folklore and legend,” says D’Entremont, who has written 7 books and hundreds of articles on lighthouses, and also conducts narrated tours and lectures on the subject. He first became interested in maritime history as a child growing up in the 1960’s, and credits the famous New England historian Edward Rowe Snow with planting the seed.

“I really got the lighthouse bug in the 1980s, while living in Winthrop,” recalls D’Entremont, who began compiling historical information and photographs on New England lighthouses. He also started taking his own photos of the beacons, and has assembled a stunning portfolio of over 250 lighthouses, most of them in New England.
