This 150-year-old structure also features an on-site museum and invites visitors to ascend the 228 steps to the very top and catch unparalleled views of Absecon, Pleasantville, and Atlantic City.
Listed on the National Register of Historic places in 1991, the Port Republic Historic District is a 100-acre section of Port Republic housing 110 buildings dating back to 1774.
