What is it that creates lighthouses so creepy? Is a loneliness of being a usually building sailors can see for miles? Is it a gloom of a murky light intense by a mist?
I consider a creepiness stems from a fact that all lighthouses are haunted. Well…maybe not ALL lighthouses, though a lot of them seem to be. Here are some of a many condemned lighthouses on America’s shores, and a ghosts that dwell within them.
Pemaquid Point Light, Bristol, Maine.
Commissioned by President John Quincy Adams himself in 1827, this chronological site is presumably condemned by a puzzling lady in a red shawl. She’s pronounced to be a survivor of a plague that happened prolonged ago.
Point Lookout Light, Scotland, Maryland.
The site that this beacon stands on was once a jail stay during a Civil War. Maybe that’s because a decommissioned beacon is tormented by ghosts dressed in Confederate garb.
Seguin Light, Seguin Island, Maine.
A screw once presented his mother with a piano here on Seguin Island. The usually locate was that she always played a same song. The keeper’s mother played it over and over again until it gathering a screw mad. He struck his mother with an mattock and afterwards killed himself. When a seas are quiet, they contend that we can still hear a woman’s strain to this day.
Seul Choix Light, Gulliver, Michigan.
A male named Captain Joseph Townsend was once a screw of this Lake Michigan beacon in a early 1900s. When he died, they contend that his physique wasn’t scrupulously buried due to a winter weather. Perhaps this is because a spook of Captain Townsend still carries out his duties on a unchanging basis.
Ram Island Light, Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
For centuries, sailors have rammed into a rocks in Boothbay Harbor, though there are a few who have been saved by an doubtful fan — a spook of a lady who haunts a lighthouse. She waves a flame to advise sailors of their approaching doom.
St. Augustine Light, St. Augustine, Florida.
This Tim Burton-looking beacon is home to several ghosts, including a cigar-smoking male in a tower, a small lady who enjoys pranks, and one that steals sell in a present shop.
Boon Island Light, Boon Island, Maine.
In this murky mark in 1710, a boat called Nottingham Galley crashed into Boon Island. The organisation members who managed to tarry resorted to cannibalism. In further to a Nottingham crew, a womanlike suggestion named Katherine Bright haunts a island. Legend has it that she froze to genocide while diligently attending to her duties during a lighthouse.
Not usually are lighthouses terrifying places for people who are fearful of heights, though they’re intensely frightful for people who don’t wish ghosts to murder them. Steer transparent of lighthouses, folks…and maybe a whole state of Maine, only to be safe.
