Fort Mackinac is a Revolutionary War-era fort on Mackinac Island. The popular tourist site is haunted in many spots. In the Guard House are cold spots and orbs that show up in photos. In the Hospital, visitors have detected feelings of sadness and apparitions of phantom limbs. In the Officer Hills Apartment Quarters, the sound of crying babies has been heard, furniture is moved, and motion detectors go off when no one is inside. At the Officer’s Stone Quarters, ghostly children are said to play with the toys, leaving them strewn about in the morning. Apparitions also are seen at the North Sally Port Entrance Gate and Wall and on the Rifle Range Trail.

  1. Larry and Nancy McNutt  |  

    My wife and I were walking along the wall between one of the blockhouses facing the presbyterian church we hear two times a voice that said “help me.” It was a high pitched voice and when we looked there was no one on the other side of the wall. It is a steep drop and could see no children or teen that could have gotten away that quickly. Strange.

  2. My experience happened in the bathhouse. Cold spots on a hot summer day, and a moment of not being able to move. A feeling that I should have not been in the building. The hospital was an interesting building, it felt like as if it was still being used as a hospital.
