Welcome 

Our Society is proud to be the friends group for New Jersey State Park Service at the Twin Lights State Historic Site and National Landmark, and we can’t wait for you to see the new exhibits we have helped them create!  There is something for everyone here at the Twin Lights!

 

  •  a view from the highest landmass on the Atlantic coast between Maine and South America 

  • not one, but two lighthouse towers to climb, connected by the museum and museum store

  • exhibits featuring the many “firsts” witnessed here, colorful local characters, and THE LENS

  • a new interactive navigation exhibit in the south wing we’ve been waiting a year to show you

  Our Society has obtained invaluable financial support to help offset our loss of on-site donations and museum store sales during COVID-19 from the following great organizations, for whom we wish to share our thanks:

 

  • New Jersey Council for the Humanities (Covid-19 Response Grant)

  • Princeton Area Community Foundation (NJ Arts and Culture Recovery Fund, Phase II Grant)

  • Paycheck Protection Program (Forgivable Loan)

 

We look forward to seeing you here on your travels… you won’t be disappointed!
