Navesink Twin Lights
Twin Lights Historic Site
Highlands, NJ 07732
When Henry Hudson first saw the "high hills" here in 1609, he
described them as being "a very good land to fall with and a pleasant
land to see." Indeed, there are many "firsts" associated
with Twin Lights, which tower 250 feet above Sandy Hook Bay. This is
where the United States' first Fresnel
lens was located; Guglielmo Marconi demonstrated his first practical
use of the wireless telegraph from Navesink in 1899; the first lamps to be
fueled by kerosene were used here in 1883; and in 1898 it was one of the
first one electrically lit lighthouses in the country.
