Nine lighthouses were built along the Atlantic Coast of New Jersey from Sandy Hook to Cape May. They were built with a variety of architectural design from octagonal to cylindrical to frame dwellings to a fortress like castle with twin towers. All but two of these lighthouses remain to this day. Ludlamís Beach Light in Sea Isle City protected the waters from Ocean City to Stone Harbor from 1885 until 1924. This is the story of Ludlamís Beach Light.
Phil Burís interest in Lighthouses stems from early childhood trips to the top of Barnegat Light. Burís research and investigation into the Ludlam Lighthouse began in 1993 after a chance encounter with a U.S. Light-House Board map. His research has lead him to the SIC Historical Museum, U.S. Lighthouse Society, the Philadelphia Public Library, and deep into numerous books on lighthouses and the internet.
