It was named Corny Point by Captain Flinders in 1802, due to the fact that it looks like a growth on the toe of the Yorke Peninsula. The town was originally established as a place for a lighthouse, which was completed in 1882 and is 12.2 metres high. Built of local limestone, it was initially serviced by a head keeper and assistant. The lighthouse ceased being manned in 1920.
