East Point Lighthouse and Museum

East Point Lighthouse is an active lighthouse built in 1849, situated on the picturesque Southern Bayshore in Cumberland County. This fully restored and furnished lighthouse is the second oldest in New Jersey and the only remaining land-based lighthouse on the Delaware Bay. Its distinctive red roof and Cape Code architecture mark the mouth of the Maurice River. The lighthouse serves as both an active navigational aid for the United States Coast Guard and a year-round museum managed by the Maurice River Historical Society. East Point is known for its rich maritime history, spectacular views, wide variety of wildlife, and beautiful sunsets, making it a popular destination for tourists, artists, photographers, and wildlife and history enthusiasts alike.
