Anacapa lighthouse was built in 1912. The Coast Guardsmen and their families of the light station resided in the four large Spanish style white stucco houses with red tile roofs before the light station was automated in December,
1968.

The arch rock is similar to the arch rock in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

In 1980, Congress designated five of the eight Channel Islands, Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, San Miguel, and Santa Barbara Islands, and 125,000 acres (510 km2) of submerged lands as Channel Islands National Park. The lighthouse is still an active aid to navigation.
