When people think of New Jersey’s lighthouses, most think of a famous few — Barnegat, Sandy Hook, Twin Lights, and Cape May. But did you know that from New York Harbor, down along the coast to Cape May and up the Delaware Bay, the total number of lightstations, past and present, is 49? Surprisingly, 26 New Jersey lighthouses remain standing today. 

This comprehensive full-color hardcover guide includes all of the present and former lighthouses and lightships that are part of the state’s maritime history. This book provides historical information as well as stories of the keepers and notable achievements, and includes 40 full-color photographs. Directions and locations for visitors are provided. The book also includes a thorough lighthouse bibliography and color fold-out map of all past and present New Jersey lightstations, and can be easily slipped into a large pocket or backpack.

5 x 9" Hardback, by Bill Gately, 71 pages with color photos and fold-out locator map.
