Absecon Lighthouse - Atlantic City NJ Real Haunts
In 1854, the Powhatan wrecked nearby and killed 311 passengers and crew members, and causing the Absecon Inlet to be nicknamed Graveyard Inlet. The lighthouse was built in an attempt to prevent another tragedy from occurring. It served from 1857 to 1933 and now stands restored. Ghosts have been at the location since 1905, when a keeper saw the Jersey Devil at the top of the tower. Others since then have seen spirits and noticed smells of pipe and cigar smoke, and the sounds of spooky laughter, footsteps in the tower and the tower door opening and closing. Dimes are also said to appear in odd places.
