Search Barnegat New Jersey

The Barnegat Lighthouse, the second tallest in the United States, is located on the northern tip of Long Beach Island in Ocean County. It was commissioned January 1, 1859. The tower light was 165 feet above sea level. It remained a first-class navigational light until August 1927, when the "Barnegat Lightship" was anchored 8 miles off the coast. The tower's light was reduced over 80 per cent, but it was not extinguished until January 1944. The park is included as a maritime site on the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail.
