This Maryland Lighthouse Is Thought To Be One Of The Most Haunted Places On Earth
Did you know that Maryland is home to an allegedly haunted lighthouse? In fact, the entire park where it’s located is said to be haunted. This place has a dark past, and in turn, is said to be filled with gloomy spirits who roam around, especially at nighttime. Read on for the eerie details…
Point Lookout State Park in Southern Maryland always makes for a great day trip, or even a weekend away.
This state park is full of beauty...
...and a ton of history as well. In the mid-1800s it was used as a prisoner of war camp.
The camp became overcrowded and the prisoners were living in unsanitary conditions. Eventually, nearly 4,000 men died on the grounds.
While visitors have claimed to hear unusual sounds, including ghostly footsteps outside of their campsites...
...most of the paranormal activity is said to happen in and around Point Lookout Lighthouse.
A ghostly soldier has been spotted guarding the front porch...
...and it's also said that eerie figures tend to peek out of the windows as well. Most of the spooky happenings occur at nighttime, but even those touring the lighthouse during the day have witnessed shadows darting around the different rooms.
