The Martha's Vineyard Museum, as steward for the Edgartown lighthouse, and as part of their restoration of the historic lighthouse, has created the Children's Memorial at the Edgartown Lighthouse to memorialize children who have died.
It is a place where people from all over can gather
and celebrate the lives of these children
.....and have a stone carved with a child's name
placed permanently at the base of the lighthouse,
reflected forever in its light.
It is for children only, and we believe, it is the only one of its kind.
For more about the Memorial please visit the Martha's Vineyard Museum web site. A full list of names for the children of the memorial can be found on the Museum's web site along with information about ordering stones and events at the Memorial. The 2012 Ceremony of Remembrance is scheduled for Saturday, September 15, at 1PM. You may also contact the Museum directly for more information or any questions.
