Experience Wildwood’s wonderful history at Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. The lighthouse is a landmark that recently underwent a painstaking restoration. When I initially pulled up to the grounds,
Hereford Inlet Lighthouse is located at Hereford Inlet, on First and Central Avenues in North Wildwood. Hereford Light began operations on May 11, 1874. The tower is 49.5 feet tall, with light elevation rising to 57 feet above sea level. The light is visible for 13 nautical miles.
A severe storm in 1913 damaged the light’s foundation, requiring it to be moved westward about 150 feet. In 1964 the old light was replaced by an automatic light tower, but in 1986 the light was again placed in the lighthouse.Free tours of the lighthouse are offered during the summer. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this lighthouse is open for tours, which are a fun way to spend an afternoon if you’re seeking a break from the beach. Tours take visitors through the lighthouse’s many period rooms, and guests are encouraged to explore the surrounding gardens (which are immaculately manicured and, frankly, quite impressive). Tours cost $9 for adults and $3 for children under the age of 11.
