Navesink Twin Lights

Twin Lights Historic Site
Lighthouse Road
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.
