A look at Long Beach Island, NJ
A visit to the Barnegat Lighthouse and Park is a great way to spend a day. The Barnegat Lighthouse was built in 1855. It was designed by the Union Army General George “Snapping Turtle” Meade. Old Barney stands 165 feet high.

This is an aerial view of Barnegat Light and the Barnegat Inlet from a 1920’s survey by the Army Corps of Engineers.
This beautiful tile coaster of the Barnegat Lighthouse with the moon would make a great gift.
The Barnegat Light Museum is located in Barnegat Light at Central Avenue and Fifth Street. You can easily miss the museum as most people take Broadway to the Barnegat Lighthouse. The museum is well worth a visit, especially for the original first order fresnel lens from the lighthouse.
