Land Surrounding East Point Lighthouse Sold to Preserve Historic AreaLast Edited:
The New Jersey Conservation Foundation has taken another step forward in helping to preserve and protect a historic South Jersey lighthouse, and just in time for National Lighthouse Day.
The foundation announced it has sold 8.8 acres of land along the Delaware Bay to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) so they can provide additional access and protection to the adjacent historic East Point Lighthouse in Maurice River Township.
The East Point Lighthouse is considered vulnerable to storm damage and coastal erosion due to its location on the Delaware Bay and officials say the NJDEP is researching options to protect the iconic lighthouse so that future generations can enjoy it.
