CAPE MAY - LEWES TERMINAL
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of Lewes Terminal.

The first town in the first state of the US has a dark and eerie history that many visitors do not realize. Many do not stop and read the plaque at the terminal that explains they walked across 800 graves while at the terminal.

On the plaque are written the words:
"Lewes has been a port-of-call and a Harbor-of-Refuge since the 17th century. For generations during the age of sail, a public burying ground in this immediate locality became the final resting place for hundreds of sailors who lost their lives and whose unidentified bodies were here cast ashore. In remembrance of those persons whose remains are sheltered on this shore, this memorial is placed. May they find eternal repose."


Now, on with the ghostly tale. The terminal and parking lot was built in the 1960ís over the graves of the unknown sailors.

Many employees and visitors have accounted ghostly apparitions while they were at the Lewes Terminal. One such story is about a young man that worked the night shift at the terminal. On his very first night, after quite a few hours he began to see a black fog rise from the computer and copy machines. He left the room, hoping the fog would disappear by the time he returned, but it was still present after his break. As he stared at the black and misty fog, it began to take shape in a human figure that began coming toward the room where the young man was before disappearing.

Others working the nightshift at the Lewes Terminal have noted dark figures or shadows moving across the walls, had dryers would come with no one in the room, the radio volume and channels would change by unseen hands, and ice would fall from the soda machine without a cup waiting to catch the ice.

Are the sailors still roaming the area at night unable to advance to their final rest? The answers may never be known.
