The Ghostly Tales of Michigan’s Haunted Lighthouses


“Welcome to the spooky shores of Michigan! Stay alert! Ghosts lurk around every corner. Even the most unexpected places might be haunted by wandering phantoms. Did you know that the former keeper of the Seul Choix Point Lighthouse still keeps his watch, despite having been dead for over a hundred years? Or that a mysterious young girl searches for playmates at the Marquette Island Lighthouse? Can you believe that the poltergeist at Waugoshance Shoal Lighthouse loves to play pranks on visitors? Pulled right from history, these ghostly tales will change the way you see Michigan’s coast, and have you sleeping with the light on!”
