Tuckers Island Lighthouse is a reproduction of the lighthouse which was built in 1868 on Tuckers Island. When you enter, look for photos of the lighthouse as it fell into the ocean in October of 1927. The lighthouse contains exhibits on New Jersey maritime history and the people who lived it including the stories of shipwrecks, lighthouse keepers and the U.S. Lifesaving Service. From the second floor, you can climb the forty-two steps to the tower for a beautiful view of the Seaport and Lake Pohatcong.
On the first floor is a new exhibit Celebrate 350 Liberty, Diversity, and Innovation at the Jersey Shore. The exhibit & related programs are presented by the Jersey Shore Folklife Center at Tuckerton Seaport. On the second floor an extensive Tuckerton Railroad exhibit features a working model train.
