Hereford Inlet Lighthouse

If not for the light standing tall above its Victorian architecture, you might mistake the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse for a prime vacation home. Built in 1874, this lighthouse was one of the more well-appointed along the Jersey Shore, featuring five fireplaces and beautiful living quarters for the keeper and his family. Outside, you can see the lovely garden of flowers and herbs that invites passersby. Hereford Inlet Lighthouse now offers a small museum and is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

There is an Admission fee.
