Although some say the story is a work of fiction, Muriel Trevenard is the ghost who some believe to haunt Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. As the legend goes, Muriel was visiting the lighthouse with her friend Harold. As they left, she realized she left her handkerchief and went back in. Harold heard her scream and rushed in after her, but she was nowhere to be found.

  1. I visited this Lighthouse 2 years ago, as we were getting ready to leave, all 3 of us heard a blood curtling scream, could this have been Muriel?

  2. This lighthouse is haunted by more than Muriel. The entity that made her disappear is still there too. It doesn’t make itself known like she does, with her foot steps on the stairs, cold drafts, the usual ghost phenomena. It just lurks, invisible and undetectable to most everyone who has not developed their psychic senses. Probably the most disturbing place I’ve ever been to.
