The original Cape Anguille tower was one of nine known flying-buttress lighthouses designed by William P. Anderson, chief engineer and superintendent of lighthouses at the Canadian Department of Marine and Fisheries. It was demolished in the 1960s. As of spring 2004, there is still a resident keeper here. The station was transferred to the Southwest Coast Development Association in 2002, and the keeper's house is open as the Cape Anguille Lighthouse Inn.
