Take A Tour Of New Jersey’s Most Endangered Lighthouse While You Still Can

According to the New Jersey tourism board, the Garden State is home to 18 lighthouses, all with fascinating histories. Sandy Hook Light is the oldest operating lighthouse in America and Sea Girt Lighthouse was the last live-in lighthouse built in the United States. East Point Lighthouse has its own unique tale to tell, and every New Jerseyan should take a tour while they still can.
