The lighthouse was razed in the 1930s. This lighthouse was very similar to San Francisco’s East Brother Lighthouse.
The United States Lighthouse Board later realized that a light positioned offshore near the junction of the strait and river would better serve navigation in the area. The Carquinez Strait Light opened in 1909 to replace this light in purpose, but in an offshore location, between the two channels.
A Navy Direction Finding Station was later erected on the site in 1942. It was manned by U.S. Navy radiomen stationed at Naval Radio Station, Mare Island. The station was closed in 1945 after World War II ended and a Navy Radio Beacon was installed.
