Twelve year old Claire Burn of Virginia is truly one of the “Next Generation” of lighthouse keepers who will be a leader in preserving lighthouses and the history associated with them.

Claire, who refers to herself as a “lighthouse lover extraordinaire,” writes to us that she is an avid reader of Lighthouse Digest and loves the magazine. Claire’s, who is a pretty good lighthouse artist in her own right, says her favorite lighthouse is Piney Point Lighthouse in Maryland and one of her dreams is to visit the lighthouses in Maine.
