PRESQUE ISLE LIGHTHOUSE
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Presque Isle Lighthouse.
Situated on Lake Huron
at Presque Isle in the state of Michigan in the United States and
built in 1840 it is another lighthouse whose one time keeper
apparently refuses to abandon it.
Presque Isle Lighthouse is said to be
haunted by George Parris, it's keeper up until the year 1991.
One incident recalls how a little girl
visited the tower and appeared to have seen George there and she
later identified the 'man in the tower' on seeing a portrait of him.
Currently in a state
of abandonment a light sometimes flashes from the lighthouse tower
and this phenomenon apparently began soon after the death of George
Parris in 1991.
George Parris and his wife Lorraine Parris
lived in a cottage adjacent to the lighthouse from the year 1977
onwards where they kept the lighthouse grounds in order and even
guided tours around the area. The lighthouse had had its wiring
removed in the year 1979 which is why the appearance of the flashing
amber lights after George Parris's death (he had helped the Coast
Guard remove the wiring himself while alive) is so mysterious.
He is still survived
by his wife and she believes it is his presence that is felt in and
around the lighthouse. Phantom smells of non existent breakfasts
sometimes still pervade the house, she says (he used to make the
breakfast for her) "Quite a romantic spirit, this is!"
