Hudson-Athens Lighthouse

Hudson-Athens Lighthouse

I found myself on the Hudson River School Art Trail after a visit to Thomas Cole’s home in Catskill. The settings for several paintings have been mapped out for us modern day travelers. One of the locations was in the city of Hudson at Promenade Park, for a view of Mount Merino, as painted by Sanford R. Gifford. I had the chance to get another lighthouse photo, but these Hudson River School painters of the early to mid-19th century didn’t have that opportunity, since the lighthouse was not built until 1874.
