Peggys Point Lighthouse

You are here Home  > Lighthouses >  Peggys Point Lighthouse

Peggys Point Lighthouse is rumored to be haunted by a European woman and shipwreck survivor named Margaret who lived here in 1800. So her story goes, her husband was attempting to cheer her up by dancing a jig on the rocks, but he slipped and died. Later, she walked out to the area where he fell and was never heard from again—alive, anyway. When the lighthouse was built in 1868, tourists began to see Margaret’s ghost standing along the rocky shores in a blue dress, and she has spoken to a few folks as well. The site was featured on Creepy Canada.
