Sea Girt Lighthouse guided mariners in their journeys since December 10, 1896. It was built to illuminate a blind spot between the Barnegat Lighthouse and Navesink Lighthouse. It is one of only 11 of the 40 original lighthouses in New Jersey open to the public. The building is now a historical landmark filled with exhibits, photos and artifacts of its vital role in the history of New Jersey. Group tours are offered on Sundays from 2-4pm most of the year, and they can also be scheduled year-round by special arrangement.
