POINT LOOKOUT LIGHTHOUSE
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Point Lookout Lighthouse.
Claimed by many to be
the most haunted lighthouse in the United States of America, Point
Lookout Lighthouse was active until recently and is presently being
restored. It even has it's own fog bell tower and shares many
historically analogous points with the Eastern State Penitentiary.
The Eastern State
Penitentiary was intended to be a holding unit for a maximum of two
hundred and fifty prisoners each in solitary confinement designed to
promote meditation techniques so that they would reflect upon their
past misdeeds. Its purpose was lost in the overcrowding that
followed when it commenced leading to much mental illness and many
deaths with subsequent reports of ghosts and apparitions.
Similarly the area
next to the Point Lookout Lighthouse was turned into a prison camp
by the Union Army and saw much pain, suffering, despair, despondency
and eventually death. Every characteristic of a place, which would
go onto be a haven for haunting.
From the 1860's onwards there have been
reports of many a ghost sighted here and unexplained phenomena
abound. Mysterious noises along with strange voices of unknown
origin have been heard and even taped in the lighthouse. Apparitions
have been spotted in the basement. Specters apparently searching for
their graves that haven't been there for a hundred years have also
been reported as has the ghost of Ann Davis the lighthouse’s first
A spooky history if
there ever was one!
