Mission Statement

The First NJLHS Logo!

The New Jersey Lighthouse Society (NJLHS) was formed in 1989 as a state chapter of the United States Lighthouse Society. In 1994, the chapter became The New Jersey Lighthouse Society, Inc. The society once counted among its membership more than 1000 people throughout the United States and the world.

The Society is dedicated to fostering an appreciation of lighthouse history supporting preservation of lighthouses everywhere. The main focus of the NJLHS in these efforts is on the New Jersey, Delaware Bay and New York Harbor regions. Every year, the organization raises funds to help benefit the lighthouses in these areas. In 2000, NJLHS created the NJ Lighthouse Challenge, an event that has become a financial lifeline for participating lighthouses, museums and life saving stations. Society membership is very active in helping preserve the lighthouses of the Garden State!

Please consider helping the New Jersey Lighthouse Society complete its mission of lighthouse preservation and education. Your donation is appreciated and tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Thank you!

The New Jersey Lighthouse Society has an assortment of lighthouse merchandise for sale at the “Ways & Means” table during its General Meetings. Eventually, this merchandise will be available via this website. Check out what’s for sale!

The New Jersey Lighthouse Society’s Board of Directors consists of the Executive Committee (President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Treasurer and Recording Secretary), five (5) Directors and the Corresponding Secretary. Each office term is 2 years. Elections are held at the December General Meeting. There are also Committees that serve the society in many areas. Please click here for more information. We welcome new participants to serve on the Board and to volunteer on Committees!
