Demolition began Tuesday on a Sea Isle City landmark after a failed bid to save it.

The former 1885 Ludlam Beach Lighthouse, situated about a block from the beach at 3414 Landis Ave., was torn down to make way for new homes.

A non-profit group, the Friends of the Ludlam Beach Lighthouse, was unsuccessful in its efforts to raise enough money to save the building by moving it to a new location and restoring it.

The building has not resembled a lighthouse for decades and was moved twice from the beacon's original location. What's left of it has served as the upper portion of a six-unit summer rental since the 1940's.
