The “Old” Presque Isle lighthouse is located on the Presque Isle Peninsula…at the entrance to Presque Isle Harbor…on Lake Huron between Rogers City and Alpena, Michigan (USA). It was established in 1840 and is now an excellent museum. FYI: When we visited there, we were fortunate to meet Lorraine Paris, the widow of the former lighthouse keeper, who shared several stories “proving” that the light was haunted by her former husband. While we were not thoroughly convinced, there was little doubt that she believed it.

I am a retired high school English teacher living in northeast Ohio with a particular interest in photographing lighthouses. As I write this, I have photographed 184 lighthouses…at least one on each of the Great Lakes plus numerous Atlantic Coast lights from Maine to North Carolina. My primary camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSi…and I use either a Canon Powershot G12 or a Canon Powershot SX120 as backup.

    Great capture and story Jack .. one has to wonder why her deceased husband would be haunting her!!

  • Actually, according to her stories, he has been protecting her from harm. It was an interesting conversation we had with her, to say the least. Thanks for the comment.
