MIDDLETOWN, NJ - The Middletown Township Historical Society will hold its November meeting on Monday, November 17 at 7:30PM at the Poricy Park Nature Center, 345 Oak Hill Road (just south of the NJ Transit tracks). The program will feature Bill Dunn of the Sea Girt Lighthouse who will discuss with a slide show his new book "The Sea Girt Lighthouse - The Community Beacon." Books will be available for purchase and autographing.
Many in the area have visited the two famous lighthouses which were built in Middletown, Sandy Hook and Twin Lights. The third has an interesting story, although it is known by far fewer. It was built to place a light between Barnegat and Sandy Hook. Unlike most, it stands on a town streetscape, adjacent to the beach at Sea Girt.
