Blackistone Light was decommissioned in 1932, and twenty-four years later a shell from the nearby Naval Proving Ground reportedly exploded near the abandoned lighthouse and set it afire. The Navy later razed the remaining structure.

The replica lighthouse was completed in June 2008. It stands on higher ground and overlooks the ruins of the original lighthouse.
