Eight years after the original lighthouse was lost, the Coast Guard station was claimed by the sea. The entire island had disappeared by 1952. In the 1980s, a group of southern Ocean County sportsmen expressed concern that the old ways of bay life were in danger of extinction. This group’s vision led to the eventual creation of Tuckerton Seaport. One of the many buildings at the seaport is a re-creation of Tucker’s Island Lighthouse. Located some six miles west of its original location, the lighthouse should be quite safe from the sea. details ARLHS # USA-911
