This lighthouse was built back in 1872 and is rumored to be haunted. In 1880, lightkeeper Frederick Osborne was shot and killed by his assistant, John Stephens. A story was told in 1908 by the current lightkeeper's wife, who was having trouble with the light mechanism while her husband was away. Irritated that it wasn't working properly, she called out to Mr. Osborne's spirit, and soon his figure working on the machinery. She then fainted and when she came to, the light was working again. The spirit has been seen and his footsteps have been heard many times, keeping an eye on his former workplace and home.
