HEREFORD INLET LIGHT HISTORY-----The Hereford Inlet Light is a historic lighthouse located in North Wildwood, New Jersey, situated on the southwestern shore of Hereford Inlet at the north end of Five Mile Beach. Its construction was completed and it became operational in 1874. The lighthouse was designed by Paul J. Pelz, who also designed Hereford Inlet's sister stations, Point Fermin, East Brother, Mare Island, and Point Hueneme (since replaced) in California and Point Adams in Washington State in essentially the same style. The United States Army Corps of Engineers undertook construction of the lighthouse on November 8, 1873 on a design by Pelz, and completed it on March 30, 1874. A "Notice to Mariners" issued May 11, 1874 announced the operation of the light on the north end of Five Mile Beach. The light was decommissioned in 1964 when the United States Coast Guard constructed an automated skeletal light tower. Today, Hereford Inlet Lighthouse operates as a fully operating lighthouse, museum, and gift shop. It operates under the volunteers of the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse Commission. According to the Lighthouse Commission's website, the lighthouse is listed on both the National and State Registers of Historic Places as of 1977 and it is part of the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail.
