In October 1856, the U.S. Lighthouse Board entered this fog bell and Cape Disappointment Lighthouse into service, thus establishing the first light station on the Oregon and Washington coast.

Positioned on the north side of the entrance to the Columbia River, the bell and lighthouse warned ships off the rocky shoals of the notoriously dangerous bar.
In 1888, the Lighthouse Board transferred the bell to Warrior Rock Lighthouse on Sauvle Island, one mile SE of this location.
The bell's clear peal was heard from here on foggy days. In 1969, the U.S. Coast Guard mustered the historic bell out of service and donated it to the care of Columbia County.
