  • A historic landmark saved by the community of North Wildwood. The garden is well maintained, with a butterfly garden and other environmental attractions.
  • You'll learn more about lighthouses, and maritime history here than any other place. The setting, the gardens, and the building itself are beautiful
  • Very pretty building. With self guided tour. And a garden too
  • The historic Hereford Inlet Lighthouse was constructed and began its operation in 1874. A severe storm in August of 1913 severely damaged the foundation, causing the Lighthouse to be moved about 150 feet to where it sits today.
  • Beautiful gardens, ocean view, awesome lighthouse- what else could you ask for, also has free parking while visiting the lighthouse!
