About Jenn’s connection to the Island
Jenn’s great-great-grandfather, Arthur W. Woods, Sr. was the lighthouse keeper for Newburyport Harbor Lighthouse (Plum Island Lighthouse), in 1905 until his death in 1919. The iconic workshop on Plum Bush Creek (next to Bob’s Lobster) was once her great-grandfather’s where he made and sold wooden boats. Jenn’s family ties and her experiences with family on the island have instilled in her a great appreciation for the barrier island’s history, for the Newburyport Harbor (Plum Island) lighthouse, for the birdlife, for work of the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, for the boardwalks, and more.
