Notes:
The land for this lighthouse was first purchased in 1873 from the Indian Department, and the government recognized its obligation to turn the land back to the Indian Department as Indian Reserve in 1967. The land around the lighthouse (50 acres) and a second parcel (115 acres) were set aside as Indian Reserve for the Batchawana Indians. Hereditary Chief Edward James Sayers first inhabited the abandoned structure in 1972, and Hereditary Chief Joe Tom Sayers has lived in it since 1995.
