This past December, after the State of New Jersey granted an emergency permit, work crews from the State of New Jersey, Cumberland County, and Maurice River Township worked in the bone-chilling cold to build some sand dunes as a temporary stop gap to help slow erosion at the lighthouse until more permanent measures can take place.
The 1849 lighthouse in Maurice River, New Jersey was recently restored and opened to the public. (Photos courtesy Nancy Patterson Tidy.)
