Old Coast Guard Station, Barnegat Light, NJ
Last Updated on
The old Coast Guard Station in Barnegat Light has been acquired by the Borough of Barnegat Light and is now the Borough Hall.
The Photo below was taken before the Borough acquired the building and shows it in need of some repair. The Barnegat Light Coast Guard Station was established in 1855. Prior to the establishment of the Coast Guard, Lifesaving Station such as the Harvey Cedars Life Saving Station and the Life Saving Station at Holgate provided rescue services.
An example of a Motor Lifeboat/ cutter that was in use through most of the Post WWII years exists at the Tuckerton Seaport.
