This ship, built in 1797, boasts several ghosts, including: Neil Harvey, who was executed when he left his assigned station at his gun in fear during a 1799 battle with the French; Captain Thomas Truxtun, seen in an old-fashioned Navy uniform; Carl Hansen, ship’s watchman until 1965, whose ghost likes to play cards and give tours; an 11-year-old surgeon’s assistant who was stabbed to death by two sailors; and a sailor who hanged himself on board, who hovers around the gun and forecastle decks.

  1. This ship is actually the second Constellation built in 1853. The spirit aoard this ship is from that era and not the gentleman that was executed for abandoning his post.

  2. Been on board with my daughter in about 2005. The top and middle decks are fine, but the lower deck definitely does carry a negative feeling of some kind.

  3. The lower deck has a very eerie/negative feeling i noticed something very strange the day i walked towards the ship the day is was ask to work there with my job catering for an event. I had to go to the lower deck to get cups and plates that people had left and it was so weird i felt like something was standing behind me and i felt a brush of air when i went to turn around nobody was down there i stayed on the top level the remainder of the night. Don’t gotta tell me twice i was out of there
