Ghost stories are amazing, if you think about it. While they’re often mere legends, there’s always a bit of truth and history sprinkled into these local tall tales. Here in Northern Ohio, there’s no shortage of stories… whether you’re in Greater Cleveland or on Lake Erie. Today, we’re going to dive into a maritime tale that’s void of any merriment as we explore a haunted lighthouse near Cleveland. Keep this legend in mind, because you might want to visit this lighthouse on future trips to South Bass Island… or you might want to tell its legend by the bonfire tonight.
This lovely Victorian home and lighthouse on Lake Erie is something of a time capsule today… and some of its spectral residents just might have a story to tell. Have you ever had a ghost encounter? We’d love to hear about it in the comments.
