This is the only active light remaining of a set of three towers that formed two ranges. The original towers built in 1875 (main light and inner range) were both 20 feet tall. Both towers were rebuilt in 1893, at the same time as the third tower (Front Outer Range) was built. One of the rebuilt towers was the tallest of the three and served as the rear light. The other two towers (Front Inner Range and Front Outer Range, both 28 feet tall) were deactivated in 1999, but they still stand.
