Ghost of Minnie Quay

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Ghost of Minnie Quay

The legend of the ghost of Minnie Quay begins in 1852, when Minnie was 15. She fell in love with a sailor of whom her parents didn’t approve. When his ship sank in the Great Lakes, the distraught Minnie walked through town and leapt off the pier to her death in Lake Huron, as the townsfolk watched. Now, her ghost is seen along the beaches of Forester, some say walking or waiting, others say calling young ladies into the water.
