William Harn, his family, and second assistant keeper all lived in the lighthouse in 1876. Guests can enjoy many interactive panels and follow a family member that will give them a firsthand account on what it was like to live during the post-Civil War era.  The Harn’s parlor will be recreated and displayed in this exhibit.
