Palmer's Island Light Add Video

The Palmer's Island Light is all that remains on the tiny island inside the hurricane barrier. The keeper's home and out buildings were swept away in the 1938 Hurricane along with Mabel Small, Captain Small's wife. Captain Small who was keeper of the light for over 16 years at the time kept the light buring throughout the night of the hurricane. He was cited for acts of heroism by the National Lighthouse Service. A stone memorial is at the Fairhaven side of the barrier. It was dedicated in 1988 on the 50th Anniversary. www.westislandweather.com
