Seul Choix Point Lighthouse is rumored to be haunted by former keeper Joseph Willie Townsend, who worked at the lighthouse from 1902 to 1910. He died in the upstairs bedroom and was laid in state in the parlor. His phantom cigar smoke has been detected throughout the lighthouse, although in life, his wife only allowed him to smoke outside.
