The Brigantine Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Brigantine, New Jersey, USA. It was built in 1926 by the Island Development Real Estate Company to attract people to Brigantine Beach Island and not as an operating lighthouse. Over the years, it has served as the headquarters for the Brigantine Police Department, as a museum and a gift shop. The lighthouse fell into disrepair in the early 1990s, so a group of volunteers refurbished the building in 1995. Today, the Brigantine Lighthouse is one of Brigantine's most noticeable features.
