Additional Information

The current Cape May Lighthouse tower is the third lighthouse built at the southern tip of New Jersey. It has been both a navigation aid for mariners and an attraction for visitors since 1859. In 1936, part of the lighthouse dwelling was damaged in a fire caused by arson and remained that way for quite some time. In 1986, ownership of the tower was leased to Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts (MAC). They ran a successful fundraiser to save the lighthouse. Those funds helped restore the tower to a condition that would allow it to again be accessed by the public in 1988. The lighthouse was painted to its historic coloring of a light beige tower with a red lantern in 1994.
