The Absecon Lighthouse is a coastal lighthouse located in the north end of Atlantic City, New Jersey overlooking Absecon Inlet. It is the second-tallest lighthouse in the state of New Jersey and is the third tallest in the United States. Construction began in 1854, with the light first lit on January 15, 1857. The lighthouse was deactivated in 1933 and although the light still shines every night, it is no longer an active navigational aid. The lighthouse is open to public visitation and for a small donation you may climb to the watch room and external gallery. A re-creation of the keepers' quarters was opened in 2002 and serves as a museum and gift shop. No previous paranormal activity is recorded for this location. Although workers and volunteers have had some personal experiences such as dimes being left on the floor of the upstairs offices and shadow figures appearing throught the innkeepers house.
