The light served as a guide to fishermen and for the residents of Shediac Island. In 1950, the light was electrified, with power being provided by a battery.
The wharf was eventually abandoned in favor of another wharf, and sometime after 1960 the lighthouse was floated to Hervé Richard's shore, where it sheltered nets and fishing rigs for nearly forty years.
In 2006, Jacques Dufour and Edna Richard donated the lighthouse to Le Musée des Pionniers, where it was restored and placed on exhibit in 2007. The lighthouse is the only known surviving example of this style of light, which was widely used in New Brunswick.
