On Saturday, April 28th, Essex Heritage would like to invite visitors (ages 4+) to come and build their very own model lighthouse using every day materials! Special guest instructor and children’s book illustrator, Katy Bratun, will be leading this family friendly craft starting at 1:00pm at the NPS Visitor Center in Salem. Since 2014, Essex Heritage has been taking visitors to see the lighthouse on Bakers Island, but now we want you to your hand at building one! This event is FREE and all craft materials will be provided. American lighthouses have inspired works of art for hundreds of years, so come and take part in a fun-filled event that brings art and history and community together!
