Keeper’s Log, June 16

Quite often, people ask me if I know of any ghost stories about the lighthouses. I answer, “No, but I know a good horror story. Wanna hear it?”

Then I tell them this one.

Sand Island Light Station, June 16, 1915

W breeze and cloudy. Cool and showery at 12:00 noon. Mr. P. Hanson arrived at the station with the assistant’s family ‑ wife and (7) children. She came unexpected.

The really horrifying part?

They stayed until September.

[Camera pans around lighthouse grounds. Eerie music swells as voiceover whispers.]

“Four adults… eight children… three bedrooms… one kitchen… and this…”

classic brick you-know-what.
