What is it that makes lighthouses so creepy? Is the loneliness of being the only building sailors can see for miles? Is it the desolation of a faint light glowing through the mist? I think the creepiness stems from the fact that all lighthouses are haunted. Well...maybe not ALL lighthouses, but a lot of them seem to be. Here are some of the most haunted lighthouses on America's shores, and the ghosts that dwell within them. Pemaquid Point Light, Bristol, Maine: Commissioned by President John Quincy Adams himself in 1827, this historical site is supposedly haunted by a mysterious lady in a red shawl. She's said to be the survivor of a shipwreck that happened long ago.
