This lighthouse was completed in 1874 and is believed to be haunted by lightkeeper Fred A. Jordan. He died in 1916 while attempting to get to shore to see his family for Christmas. His rowboat capsized, and his body was found three months later. Apparitions of him began to appear, coming from his former room. His voice and footsteps have also been heard. Some believe Jordan’s spirit has even appeared to help others: Reports say a man appeared in the surf to guide an endangered yacht around the reef, and two boys who capsized in a canoe were assisted by a man who appeared from the rocks and then disappeared after ensuring the boys were safe.
