Amanda and Eugene Coleman were stationed at Cape Neddick (Nubble) Lighthouse for the longest stint during Eugene’s 32 years of service, from 1930 to 1942. Of all her lighthouse memories, Amanda said this place was the most difficult where she went for five months without being able to speak to another woman. Historian Edward Rowe Snow gave an account of Amanda, her husband Eugene and a friend capsizing in the station boat while bringing groceries over to the lighthouse. “The keeper had a busy five minutes, trying to rescue his wife, his friend, and the groceries, but all ended happily except for minor injuries to the groceries.” (Lighthouse Digest archives)
