Our History

The Twin Lights Historical Society is a non-profit organization formed by volunteers that helped save this National Landmark from ruin in 1955. Today, the Society partners with The New Jersey  State Park Service, which owns and operates Twin Lights, to share its illustrious history.

Quick Overview of Twin Lights Timeline

The Highlands of Navesink overlook the entrance to New York Bay and, as suggested by their name, these hills are some of the highest points along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Due to their geography, the Highlands have through the years been used in many diverse ways to preside over shipping traffic entering New York Harbor.
