Welcome to the Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse Society Website.
The Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse Society is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of the historic Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse, guiding Delaware River commerce for over 125 years.
The historic Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse is located at Second Street and Mantua Ave in Paulsboro, New Jersey, along the shores of the Delaware River. Our Society conducts regular tours the third full weekend of each month April through October. Special tours are available with advance notice. The lighthouse is also available for weddings and other special occasions. A small donation is accepted to help support our efforts.
Except for the installation of railings, the long anticipated construction of permanent steps, at the entrance of the lighthouse, is complete.For years, temporary wooden steps were used for access to the lighthouse.After a lengthy process of submitting architectural drawings for Coast Guard and New Jersey State Historic Site approval, construction got underway in April.The masonry steps and entry pad were constructed by Mickleton Concrete of Mickleton, NJ.Once the steps were completed, the memorial brick paver walkway, leading to them, was removed and reinstalled resulting in a wider walkway.The paver phase was accomplished by Temple Hardscape of Williamstown, NJ.The project was made possible, in part, by a memorial grant from the New Jersey Lighthouse Society in memory of Carol Ann Cook.The entire project should be completed in time for this year’s Lighthouse Challenge in October.
