Historic Site

blank dot

The East Point Lighthouse stands alone in a picturesque setting on the Southern Bayshore in Cumberland County, New Jersey. The historic and active Lighthouse marks the mouth of the Maurice River on the Delaware Bay and has guided commercial fishermen and pleasure boaters since 1849. Its distinctive Cape Cod style was the inspiration for many of the early lighthouses built on the Pacific Coast. The two-story brick structure is whitewashed with a bright red roof and has a black lantern room on top. The Lighthouse is fully restored, furnished and is open year round for tours and special events.
