The beautiful Sea Girt Lighthouse, built in 1896,
began flashing it's beam of light on December 10, 1896.
Located in Sea Girt, New Jersey,
this lighthouse is one of some 40 lighthouses,
lightships and range lights along New Jersey's 130 mile Coastline.
Just over half of them survived,
but only 11 of the original lighthouses, including Sea Girt,
are open to the public.
This red brick structure with a tower rising 44 feet was the last
live-in lighthouse built on the Atlantic Coast.
I have never been inside but plan to go back in April,
when it opens for the season.

I love visiting my country through other folks' eyes. Sure saves time *wink*
Hello Debbie, it is pretty building and lighthouse. I am sure the inside is a pretty as the outside too. Pretty sky and great shots.. Have a happy day!
Lots of character and history in this structure, and built to last. Thanks Debbie,
Wow, now that is some house for any light-keeper. I cant wait to see the inside once you visit! Very delightful.
Wow, that is a very nice looking lighthouse, can't wait to see inside when you get there.
Wouldnt that be awesome to work & live in a light house. Beautiful pictures!
That is a beautiful lighthouse. I can't wait until you go back too. I have always loved them and I have wished I was a lighthouse keeper often. :)
I'll bet that will be an enlightening visit. A very nice lighthouse and I bet a lot of history.
That is really beautiful especially against the blue sky.
What a beautiful lighthouse. She sure is showing her age well. Unlike moi. :)
I love lighthouses, and this is one that's so nice to see!
Thanks Karen, it really is a beauty!!
Ohhhhhhh, that is NICE! Beautiful!
I do love lighthouses. I really like the home attached to it. I think it is unique. These are lovely pictures as always. I do hope you get inside sometime and take more awesome photos.
Sending hugs your way!
Debbie, this is just gorgeous.
I would love to see the inside too.
That's a beautiful building and very well kept.
I've never seen a lighthouse built into a house like that!
I went there two years ago and it was adorable, inside and out. I believe it is only open on Sundays? Anyway, I did take some photos from inside and at the top of the lighthouse. It was much easier to climb to the top than at the Cape May Lighthouse!

I love your photos. It's a pretty little lighthouse, isn't it?
I've never seen a lighthouse like that. It's beautiful! I'd like to see inside too.
Can't wait to see the inside! Never saw this one in my trips to Jersey - it's so pretty! Sure do get my imagination going, these east coast light houses!
That is a lovely looking old building! I hope you plan on posting pictures of the inside when you visit again!
What a lovely brick lighthouse. Can't wait for you to go back and go inside.
That is really a nice house.
Beautiful lighthouse! I love lighthouses, but living inland, I've only seen them through pictures! So glad you shared these!
Gotta love lighthouses. That was a tough job.
