Cape May Lighthouse History
The Cape May Lighthouse is located at the tip of Cape May County in Cape May Point State Park. It was built in 1859 under the supervision of U.S. Army, automated in 1946, and continues operation to this day. It is the third fully documented lighthouse to be built at Cape May Point. The first was built in 1823; the second in 1847. The exact locations of the first two lighthouses are now underwater due to erosion. There are 199 steps to the top of the lighthouse.
