Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse

Paulsboro, New Jersey


The Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse was first lit on December 31, 1880. The black, skeletal frame work of the tower is hexagonal with a cast iron stairway ascending a cylindrical shell to the watch room and lantern room above. Even though the surrounding dwelling was vacated and the building fell into a deteriorated condition, the light tower was still needed and has remained in continuous operation. Although the tower had been closed it has been reopened to visitors on certain weekends.
