The current lighthouse was the 4th lighthouse on the station on Cape San Blas. The erosion of Cape San Blas has forced previous lighthouses to be built further inland but each one became a victim of the wind and water. Eventually it came time for the 1885 lighthouse to move. In 1918, the tower was moved 1,8ooft NE. The light was discontinued in April 1918 and during the move and resettlement. The lighthouse was set atop nine reinforced concrete blocks. The light was lit again on January 22, 1919. The light was automated in 1981 and later deactivated in 1996. In July 2014, the lighthouse and keeper's dwelling was moved from Cape San Blas to the George Core Park in Port Saint Joe (approx. 13 miles NNE).
