THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of New London Ledge Lighthouse.

A majestic red bricked lighthouse located off the shore on the eastern half of the Long Island Sound in Connecticut, New England, it is a lonely looking building said to house the spirit of a man named Ernie.

It was initially called the Southwest Ledge Light but since a lighthouse with the same name already existed in New Haven Harbor it's name was changed to the current New London Ledge Lighthouse.

It is a beautifully elegant building with the lighthouse flashing white-white-white-red. It even has a fog horn and comes with a legend to boot. According to stories a keeper called Ernie or Randolph or perhaps even John Randolph (but most know him as Ernie) learned that his wife had run away with the captain of the ferry at Block Island. Versions of the story say Ernie jumped to his death from the lighthouse roof others say the fall was accidental.

The lighthouse is now said to be haunted by his spirit. Mysterious, unexplained activity has been reported in and around the lighthouse. Boats that had been safely tied near by have been found set adrift. Lights, televisions as well as the fog horn have reportedly been said to turn on and off on their own. Decks have been found swabbed when no one had claimed to have swabbed them and doors have mysteriously opened and closed on their own. People usually attribute these occurrences to Ernie and who can tell.

Maybe it is Ernie after all!
