Here’s a sight seldom seen...accumulated snow surrounding The East Point Lighthouse in the Heislerville section of Maurice River Township. The active lighthouse is the oldest in the Delaware River and Bay area having been built in 1849. The area received a total of 12-16 inches of snow between the two snowstorms last week. Both the lighthouse and grounds surrounding the lighthouse are on the National Historic Registry. East Point is the second oldest lighthouse in New Jersey and the only remaining New Jersey land based lighthouse on the Delaware Bay. The two story Cape Cod style lighthouse with its distinctive red roof by day and blinking red beacon by night, marks the mouth of the Maurice River on the Delaware Bay.
