Thousands of people visit Barnegat Lighthouse every year at the north end of Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Over 100 beautiful color images in this book provide views of the lighthouse and surrounding scenery in every season. Lighted for the first time on January 1, 1859, Barnegat Lighthouse has endured the wrath of fierce storms and constant threat of erosive conditions at “Breakers Inlet.” The text provides an engaging history of this important lighthouse, which was for generations a critical marker for mariners sailing west from Europe along the 40th Parallel, and for 68 years the turning point for sailors heading to New York. The book celebrates the 150th anniversary of “Old Barney” in pictures and will be enjoyed by everyone who loves life along the Atlantic Coast.
