Rock Island 
Interpretive Signage
    

    

     In summer 2006, five interpretive signs, produced by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, were installed on Rock Island. The signs describe the history of the lighthouse station and the people who tended it, and include historic photographs of its buildings and keepers.

     In furtherance of its mission, the Rock Island Lighthouse Historical & Memorial Association contributed several facts and historic photographs for the signs.

     Images of each sign are presented here with permission for the enjoyment of those who can't visit the island to see the signs personally. Click an image below to view a full-size version.
