About Atlantic City

Atlantic City, located in the state of New Jersey, is a popular tourist destination known for its vibrant nightlife, casinos, and iconic Boardwalk. However, before it became a bustling resort city, Atlantic City was primarily a transportation hub for freight and passengers. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the city served as a major port for shipping goods such as coal, lumber, and seafood. The arrival of the railroad in the mid-1850s further enhanced Atlantic City's role as a transportation center, allowing for easier transportation of goods to and from the city.

One of the key factors that contributed to Atlantic City's growth as a freight transportation hub was the construction of the Absecon Lighthouse in 1857. Standing at 171 feet tall, the lighthouse served as a crucial navigational aid for ships entering and leaving the city's harbor. Its powerful beacon helped guide vessels safely through the treacherous waters of the Atlantic Ocean, ensuring the successful transportation of goods to and from Atlantic City. Today, the Absecon Lighthouse is a popular tourist attraction, offering visitors panoramic views of the city and its surrounding areas.
