New Jersey Barnegat Light

It is the second oldest lighthouse in the U. S. Built in 1856 by Lt. Gordon Meade, hero of the Battle of Gettysburg. When built the lighthouse was over a half mile from the Atlantic Ocean. Now the ocean is at its very footing. Decommissioned in 1929, it is now preserved as New Jersey's most historic landmark.
