Barnegat Light overlooking the town
One of the Jersey Shore’s most famous structures, "Old Barney" is a 165-foot red and white tower, which was used as a lookout during World War I. It was restored to its original splendor in 1988 and remains a symbol of the states’ proud maritime heritage.

The original 40-foot lighthouse was built in 1835 to mark a hazardous shoal as well as the fortieth parallel, a point crucial to transatlantic navigation.
