Lightships were stationed at this location beginning in 1825. During the Civil War the lightship was burned by Confederate forces in 1861.
A screw-pile lighthouse was constructed on the spot in 1867. This light burned on Christmas Day in 1893 and was rebuilt in 1896. In 1951 the house was removed and a skeleton tower erected on the old foundation.
