Located on the west coast of Cape Breton Islandmarker fronting the Gulf of St. Lawrencemarker, Inverness sits astride a small coal seam which was exploited from the late 19th century to the mid-late 20th century, beginning with a mine opened by Sir William MacKenzie and Sir Donald Mann during the 1890s after they achieved control of the Inverness and Richmond Railway. Several more mines opened in and near Inverness during the early 20th century, but many closed following World War II and the last one closing in the early 1990s following a fire.

The community was established in 1904. It experienced economic hardship since large scale industrial coal mining ended; the local economy is now based mainly on fishing and tourism.
