Stories say the historic tower was often used as a landmark on pirates’ maps, a tale that may support the fact that a ghostly pirate is said to roam the area. Another story told around these parts is that of a marine monster who lives in the waters adjacent to the tower, and was seen dragging a little girl under the water.
