Seguin Island Lighthouse, Popham Beach, Maine
On a small rocky island in Maine, the Seguin Island Lighthouse is said to be haunted by the former keeper. The story goes that former keeper murdered his wife with an ax and then committed suicide. Supposedly, the keeper’s wife had driven him insane by playing the same song repeatedly on the piano. Visitors to the island today say whispers of the song are carried in on Atlantic breezes.
Visitors to Gettysburg, site of the Civil War battle, often experience a hair-raising blast from the past, hearing gunshots crack and catching whiffs of gunpowder. This disturbing phenomenon gives tourists a taste of America’s bloodiest battle. Some victims are said to remain in spirit at Gettysburg, stuck in an eternal North vs. South struggle.
