“Lighthouse with a ghostly past”

It is rumored that the lighthouse's site got its name before the American Revolutionary War when British colonial authorities executed people by chaining them to the rocks at low tide, allowing the rising water to drown them. This is also the location of where the bodies of serial killer Carl Panzram victim's were found.  In recent years, people have heard ghostly sounds and seen apparitions coming from the lighthouse. Experience the lightkeeper's experience and put the ghost rumors to rest! There is no water or electricity on the island, so plan accordingly.
