The signal station was completed in early 1860. 

The road to the Sanatorium on the peak is being fast proceeded with. In a few days there will be a flagstaff erected on the summit, which will be used to signalise all vessels seen in the offing. Building lots in the vicinity have been advertised for sale, and will shortly be sold by auction.
