Built in 1769, the structure is thought to be haunted by the first female lightkeeper, Hannah Thomas, who took over after her husband John was killed in the Revolutionary War. Tales tell of a photographer who spent the night here and saw an apparition of the upper half of a woman in period clothing with long dark hair, believed to be Hannah.
