The Webcam project is dedicated in memory of Henry “Hank” I. Stahr, Jr.
The project was made possible by a donation made in his memory by his family.
Henry “Hank” Irvin Stahr Jr. (1924-2014) was enamored with the ocean since his boyhood days in Scituate MA, where he played on the First Cliff rocks as a boy, worked as an Irish mosser as a teen, and taught his children how to sail as an adult. In addition to his love of Scituate harbor and the lighthouse, he was fascinated with weather and enjoyed tracking storms. An electrical engineer by profession, he was always inquisitive and interested in the latest technology. Hank would be pleased to know that the Scituate lighthouse webcams will make live feeds of the harbor available across the web.
There are now 12 different cameras. The donations made by the Stahr family has served to fund several of them, as have donations made by members of the Scituate Historical Society. The hope is that the current renovation project will allow for a 360 degree panorama from the inside of Scituate Light.
