About Sea Girt Lighthouse
Protecting the shore since 1896.
Sea Girt Lighthouse was built, on the orders of the U.S. Light-House Board, in 1896 to illuminate a dark spot midway in the 38 & 1/2-mile stretch between the Navesink and Barnegat Lighthouses.
Sea Girt Lighthouse is also the last live-in lighthouse built on the Atlantic Coast. A live-in lighthouse has the tower attached to the home. The more typical design is to be found at Sandy Hook and Cape May Lighthouses where the keeper’s quarters are separate from the towers.
