Work started in 1893, and the station commenced operation later that year. The station’s light consisted of a lens lantern displayed from a post located close to the point. A steam-powered Daboll trumpet served as the fog signal. In 1936, the light was updated to a small concrete tower with a 12-inch (300 mm) light and a diaphragmfoghorn replaced the Daboll trumpet. The station was automated in 1974.
