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.

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..

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
