The red and white Barnegat Lighthouse is commonly referred to as "Old Barney" and stands 172 feet tall. It was erected in 1858.
This is actually the second one built at this location. There was an original building put up 20 years prior that stood 40 feet tall. It ended up falling into the ocean due to beach erosion! "Old Barney" has stood the test of time though, and still stands today.
If you'd like to visit this unique building, you'll find it at the northern tip of Long Beach Island.
There is a small fee in the summertime to climb to the top and see the scenic views. There are over 200+ steps! It remains open year round, so you're able to visit off season also.
It opens to the public at 9am.
