Boston Light

You are here Home  > Lighthouses >  Boston Light

The Boston Light, built in 1783, is said to be haunted by an old sailor who hates rock ‘n’ roll music. When Coast Guards tune in to rock stations in the vicinity, they find that their radios suddenly switch to classical stations. At the lighthouse, footsteps and cold spots accompany his visits, and a rocking chair has been known to move on its own. A cat also once became agitated and hissed at something unseen here.
