Marla Rogers, daughter of former Owls Head Light keeper Archford V. Haskins, will be the featured speaker at the Thomaston Historical Society’s program Tuesday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Knox Farmhouse, 80 Knox St. in Thomaston. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Rogers’ program will recount rich family memories of living in lighthouses. Her father’s career included appointments as keeper at Boston Head Light, Great Point Light in Nantucket, Mass., Sankety Head Light in Nantucket, Mass., and Owls Head Light. She was born while the family was stationed at Great Point Light, and the presentation will highlight her recollections of growing up at Sankety Head and Owls Head.

“Many of us are fascinated by lighthouses and the lifestyles of people who have lived in and maintained them,” said historical society Vice President Carol Achterhof. “Marla’s program will give us rare insight into what it is like to grow up in a lighthouse, and we look forward to this interesting session.”

Rogers currently resides in Owls Head.

The session will begin with refreshments at 7 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 7:30 p.m. and culminating with Rogers’ presentation at 7:40 p.m.

The society maintains and operates a museum of local artifacts at its headquarters, the Knox Farmhouse, the last remaining building from the original 18th century Gen. Henry Knox estate, located at 80 Knox St. in Thomaston.
