The lighthouse is said to be haunted by a few spirits, one of which is said to be assistant lightkeeper Joseph Davis, who had a heart attack while working in 1919. The unexplained waft of kerosene sometimes detected here is attributed to his ghost. Kerosene has not been used in the lighthouse since 1933. Another haunt who resides here is believed to be a former lightkeeper’s son, who died after being kicked by a horse. His ghost plays pranks and opens and closes doors. Orbs also are said to appear around the grounds.
