NJLHS  Mission

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, one of the largest regional lighthouse societies in the United States. The society counts among its membership more than 1000 people throughout the United States and the world.

The Society is dedicated to fostering an appreciation of the history about and to support the 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. Society membership is very active in helping to preserve the lighthouses of the Garden State.

People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.
