A presentation by Jeremy D’Entremont on Saturday October 31, 4:00 PM Eastern Time; 1:00 PM Pacific TimeLighthouses are picturesque icons that remind us of our rich maritime history, but they also have a dark side. Lighthouses and ghost stories often seem to go hand in hand, as confirmed by the many horror stories and movies that have utilized lighthouses as their settings. This presentation will focus on macabre tales of New England’s coastal beacons, including the lovelorn spirit known as Ernie at Connecticut’s New London Ledge Light and the piano playing ghost of Maine’s Seguin Island Light. Also included will be accounts of strange happenings at America’s oldest light station, Boston Light, and at Portsmouth Harbor Light in New Hampshire.
USLHS Historian Jeremy D’Entremont has personally taken part in many lighthouse investigations by paranormal research groups. He calls himself an “open-minded skeptic,” and he’ll share some of his personal experiences. He has appeared on the Syfy Channel’s popular Ghost Hunters program and a Travel Channel documentary on haunted lighthouses.
