photo of Keeper Zuius with daughter Barbara

Capt. George Zuius was keeper from 1935 to 1941. He was the last civilian keeper before the U.S. Coast Guard took over the operation of Faulkner's Island Light. Keeper Zuius kept the light burning through the terrible Hurricane of 1938. His daughter Barbara, in the picture above, remembers playing on the island with her dog Rexie and a pet chicken.
