Join the Hull Lifesaving Museum on Friday, May 16 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Point Allerton U.S. Lifesaving Station with inspiring stories from the past and present.

Constructed in 1889 by the United States Lifesaving Service, Point Allerton Station is best known as the home of legendary lifesaving Joshua James and his crew, who saved hundreds of lives from shipwrecks in Boston Harbor. The historic station was actively used by the Coast Guard until 1969, providing support to Boston Light and Boston Lightship over the years, in addition to small boat and search and rescue operations. Today, Point Allerton U.S. Lifesaving Station stands as a monument to the lifesavers and the community of which they were an integral part, a community built on the ethic of skills, courage, and caring.

Hull Lifesaving Museum is located at 1117 Nantasket Avenue, Hull, Massachusetts. For more information, contact Victoria Stevens at (781) 925-5433 or email: victoria@hulllifesavingmuseum.org.
