The New Jersey Lighthouses and select museums happily announce that they are again hosting The Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey weekend on October 18th & 19th, 2014. Visitors can enjoy an opportunity to tour the state and visit each lighthouse over the weekend, and help raise needed funds for the continued preservation of our treasured landmarks.

Hours of operation for each lighthouse can be found on our schedule page. Night climbs are being offered at Absecon, Cape May, Tinicum, & Tuckerton from 6pm to 8pm on Saturday.

These majestic beacons have played an important role in New Jersey's history, guarding mariners and protecting our coasts for over a century. Lighthouses serve as a reminder of American ingenuity while honoring the values of safety and heroism. Visit the lighthouses and museums on the Challenge for an opportunity to step back in time and learn more about our state and country's history.

The Lighthouse Challenge of NJ is encouraging the public to take advantage of this special weekend to financially support the lighthouses and help to preserve the maritime history of our state.
