The Haunted Lighthouse Outside Buffalo That Will Send Shivers Up Your Spine
It doesn’t need to be Halloween to enjoy hearing a good spooky tale, especially when the story surrounds a place that’s right near your hometown. Head south from Buffalo and follow the shoreline of Lake Erie and before you know it, you’ll be at a historic lighthouse – one that some believe may be home to numerous ghosts. You may have visited this landmark before without knowing the paranormal activity that is said to take place here, but once you hear about its haunted history, you might just want to make another trip!
