The Most Haunted Lighthouses of the Great Lakes Region

The old lighthouses of the Great Lakes are believed to hold the unsettled spirits of those who kept them, and those who met tragic, untimely deaths.

The Great Lakes region was once a major hub for the shipping industry, with hundreds of ships traveling through their waters. Lighthouses were constructed in all five lakes to aid in the safe passage for the ships and their crews. But, at these often remote lighthouses, tragic, untimely deaths meant keepers and crew remained even after they died. These 11 lighthouses from Michigan to New York hold tales of unsettled spirits that can make any ghost hunter’s hair stand on end.
