Isles of Shoals Historical and Research Association (ISHRA): Shipwrecks & Lighthouses

June 24, 2017 to June 28, 2017

Shipwrecks—and the lighthouses built to prevent them—have for centuries been closely associated with the Isles of Shoals and neighboring waters off the New England coast. Explore their legend and lore with experts during this five-day, four-night conference, with time to relax and enjoy the beauty of Star Island.


ISHRA does not have specific activities for children, but older children may enjoy the program.
