Buckland Hill Signal Box was a lineside structure described in Weekly Notice No. 43 of 1910 as being '...on the Down side of line between North Fremantle and Cottesloe Beach at 9 miles 8 chains 27 links (from Perth)'.

The nearby station named Cottesloe Beach, was renamed on 1st of July 1931 as Buckland Hill and subsequently renamed again on 1st of November 1937 as Mosman Park.

On the 12th of June 1946 the existing Signal box (formerly Buckland Hill, but then operating under the name of Mosman Park) was closed and operations were transferred to a new signal box in the Station Building on the Up Platform.
