    The new exhibit will allow visitors to experience what it was like to live at the light station through the eyes of the head keeper William Harn and his family. 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.
