But is this lighthouse really haunted, you've got to see to believe right? That's the hard thing about paranormal activity, is that you have to experience it first hand to really know. Whether you're a believer in the paranormal or not, you can see for yourself on the lighthouse's ghost hunt tour.
During the hour and a half tour, you'll walk the historic 1869 Keeper's Quarters and tower to hunt for spirits and paranormal activity. If you're a die-hard ghost hunter and like to document your paranormal experiences, feel free to bring your own equipment.

You'll also get to go up into the lighthouse tower, where people have reported seeing shadowy figures on the steps above them.

Both The Travel Channel and Sci-Fi channels' Ghost Hunters have deemed this place haunted on their walkthroughs.
