Seeing Stars: Every Flag Tells a Story
at Twin Lights National Historic Landmark • Lighthouse Road • Highlands NJ
HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Twin Lights Museum, which draws more than 80,000 visitors a year, is dedicating its new exhibit, entitled Seeing Stars: Every Flag Tells a Story.
The exhibit features more than $2 million in historic flags, patriotic artifacts and paintings, and marks the successful conclusion of a three-year renovation effort aimed at creating the finest small museum in New Jersey.
April 25th marks the 123rd anniversary of the day when the Pledge of Allegiance was given AT THE TWIN LIGHTS as the national oath of loyalty for the first time. The event will be held on the spot where the pledge was recited by its author, Francis Bellamy.
The Twin Lights Museum is a great “Sandy Success” story. The site has generated millions in tourism dollars for the storm-ravaged surrounding towns and provided a beacon of hope for recovery.
The new museum is expected to draw an additional 30,000 visitors a year.
