The appearance of this lighthouse changed sometime between 1930 and 1945. It is unclear whether it was rebuilt or simply given a lantern and gallery at that time. Ownership of the lighthouse was transferred to the Port George District Lighthouse Society in May 2002. The group has made many improvements to the property.
