Ground breaking for lightkeepers house at Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City, NJ.

Gregory Foran, great-great grandson of the last keeper of Absecon Lighthouse is shown here breaking ground for the reconstruction of a replica of the original lightkeepers quarters at New Jersey's Absecon Lighthouse.

Looking on is Sara Cureton, Executive Director of Absecon Lighthouse, Bill Geilfuss (in Keepers uniform) of the New Jersey Lighthouse Society, Frederick Nickles, Chairperson of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, Stewart Wiser, President of the Inlet Public/Private Association and Gibb Jones, councilman of the district that includes the lighthouse.
