In an effort to help mariners navigate around the Shagwong Reef, which sits about three-and-a-half miles northwest of the lighthouse, a fourth-order fixed red range-light was added to the watch deck in 1903. During Prohibition, the isolation of Montauk Point made it an attractive destination for incoming bootleggers. In 1925, Head Keeper John E. Miller and his son (who served as first assistant keeper) were actually suspected of collaborating with sea-borne bootleggers. A severe hurricane damaged this light in September of 1938 and it was subsequently removed in July of 1940 when the lighthouse was electrified.

This picture of a barren tree with roots exposed due to erosion is a great example of the difficult life vegetation features on the shores of the Long Island Sound. All coastal beach habitats are very harsh environments for plants and animals alike. The soils are composed of siliceous sand, quartzite gravel and rock, or a mixture of the two. These soils are often acidic, excessively well-drained, and subject to huge fluctuations in temperature on a daily basis, or even within a tidal cycle. The sand is extremely unstable and plants must be able to adapt to rapid exposure and burial. Salt spray is another important controlling factor in plant distribution. In order for any vegetation to become established on this substrate, it must be tolerant of salt spray, which is toxic to most terrestrial plants.
