Formerly called as the Cape Gregory Light, the Cape Arago Light located in Charleston, Oregon is a historic lighthouse listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It was constructed in 1934, as the third tower in the site, after the first two became victims of the harsh outdoor conditions, as well as erosion.

The Cape Arago Light was designed to withstand the terrible outdoor elements. It was made in concrete in an octagonal shape. It was first lit in 1934 and automated in 1966. It initially used the traditional Fresnel lens but was then replaced in 1993 with more modern Lens.

The Cape Arago Light stood as a beacon into the Coos Bay until it was deactivated in 2006. Although, it is closed to the public today, the site can still be seen from the nearby parks in the Oregon Coast Trail.
