Gorton, Connecticut, has a 1909 built lighthouse. It was automated in 1987, it was taken over by the US Coast Guard in 1939 and comes complete with it’s own ghost story. The coat guard crew, before it was automated, reported doors opening, strange sounds and such things as TV’s turning on and bedsheets being removed from the beds without explanation.

In the crew’s log on the last night before it was automated, an unknown author wrote “Rock of slow torture. Ernie’s domain. Hell on earth – may New London’s Ledge light shine on forever because I’m through. I will watch it from afar while drinking a brew.”

Investigations have been conducted by various groups. Ghost Hunters (TAPS) went in and found cold spots and other things linked to paranormal thought they felt there was nothing conclusive.
