The Cape May Lighthouse is a lighthouse located in New Jersey at the tip of Cape May, in Cape May Point State Park, located in the town of Cape May Point. It was built in 1859, was automated in 1946, and continues operation to this day. It is the third fully documented lighthouse to be built at Cape May Point.

The lighthouse is owned by the state of New Jersey[1] after ownership was transferred from the Coast Guard in 1992, which maintains it as an active aid to maritime navigation.

The tower is 157 feet 6 inches tall, from the ground to the tower's cast iron spiral staircase. There are 217 steps from the ground to the top, with 199 steps in the tower's cast iron spiral staircase. The lighthouse has two separate walls. The outside wall is cone-shaped, and is 3 feet 10 inches thick at the bottom, and 1 foot 6 inches thick at the top. The inside wall is cylinder with 8.5-inch thick walls which support the spiral staircase. The walls were designed to withstand winds several times above hurricane force.
