Our Mission

The Barnegat Light Historical Society is a non-profit corporation organized under the laws of New Jersey whose purposes are exclusively charitable and educational.

Our main objective is to keep the history of Barnegat Light alive and available to the public through the preservation of local artifacts and pictures in the 106 year old restored schoolhouse museum, and through various programs and events promoting our museum, our society, and the long history of the town.  We reach out to members, the community and vacationers through the daily access to the museum in the spring, summer and fall months, fundraisers and various celebratory events.
