Here's something I found about the haunted history of the Preque Isle, Michigan light.
Said to be haunted by the ghost of George Parris, the former lighthouse keeper. The lighthouse is now abandoned, yet an amber light is occasionally seen still flashing from the tower. George and Lorraine Parris moved into the small house attached to the lighthouse in 1977, where they looked after the grounds and provided tours to vacationers. The lighthouse was actually taken out of service in 1870, but it wasn't until 1979 that George and the Coast Guard removed the wiring. Yet after George died in 1991, the mystery light began to appear. "I knew right away that it was George," said his widow, who continued the caretaker duties alone. "He used to cook breakfast for me in the morning. Bacon and eggs. There were many mornings when I'd wake up to the smell of breakfast, but naturally no one was there. I knew that it was him." According to one story, a little girl touring the lighthouse with her family had climbed to the top of the tower and returned giggling. When asked who she had been talking to up there, she said, "To the man in the tower." She later identified the man as George Parris from a portrait of him in the cottage.

I'm afraid I'm too far away now. I live in Arizona.
So you saw it too, what do you think of all the stuff that seem to happen there? Can you visit it and if so have you? I know many of the locals still believe it is haunted and with the many things I have read and seen I can't say I totally disagree with them. I would love to hear from someone who has actually been there themself to get their reaction though. It really is a beautiful Lighthouse.

Oh I'll eventually make my way back to Michigan. After I retire I want to do some serious travelling.
It's too bad you didn't get the chance to visit it when you wee there. I hear it's quite an experiance. As much as I love them I've never been on the inside of one. It's my goal this summer during the open house of Hospital Point Lighthouse in Beverly Ma. to actully get into one this year.

The house is reportedly haunted by several ghosts. the activity includes strange banging sounds, and an image of a man in an old keepers uniform. one keeper william priar had hung himself in the woods behind the light.and was found on sept,24 1901.
another sighting by a clairvoint was of a woman who stated she was mad that people didnt know she was there. she didn't know how she came to die. rather it was in the light house or maybe in a wreck on the lake..

FYI, the TAPS team's chair only moved several inches. They did catch it on video. I was convinced. I think that lighthouse was Red Rock Island.
Here is a good site with a lot of haunted light houses on it. One was featured on TV not that long ago the TAPS team went out and looked at it. They had a chair fly across the room.
Ooo a thread about lighthouses!! I love lighthouses....I'm a card carrying Lighthouse Society of America member! LMAO!
The lighthouse on Ghost Hunters where the chair moved several minutes after Grant left the room was Race Rock and its located in New York, not New London, CT like they say on the show. It's misleading because it is actually situated kinda near 2 of the lighthouses in New London, but technically, its NY. http://www.cr.nps.go...ht/racerock.htm
