At this wildlife reserve and beach, locals tell of the ghost of Higbee himself, who appears when anyone approaches his grave. Higbee is believed to be seen chasing another ghost, that of a slave, down the woodsy trails. Townsfolk also tell of a ghostly sailor who appears at the top of a dune, and then disappears just as quickly.
