This is an iconic landmark. Barnegat Light House or Old Barney as the locals call it is a 1 class light house, meaning where ships that come from Europe would aim for as a destination. Once they saw it they could take a right turn for New York or a Right for Delaware Bay. The light house is in excellent shape thanks to the terrific group of volunteers who manage the overall structure and grounds. This light house was designed by (then) West Point Graduate Leutenant George Meade. George Meade when on to fame as the General (under General USS Grant) who defeated General Robert E Lee in the Civil War.
