It was originally erected in 1867 on the west side of Assateague Island in northern Accomack County for use by coastal marine traffic. In 1961 it was updated with a 1,800,000 candlepower lens and apparatus. Now it serves as a landmark also for the many tourists visiting the island to see the world famous ponies.
