Race Rock Lighthouse
Long Island Sound
Race Rock Lighthouse (Ghost Hunters) - The U.S. Coast Guard
has asked TAPS to investigate the
Race Rock Lighthouse in Long Island Sound, off the coast of New London,
Race Rock Light is a lighthouse on Race Rock Reef, southwest of Fishers Island, New York.
The reef is a dangerous set of rocks off the coast of Fishers Island on Long Island Sound and was the site of many shipwrecks.
Built in 1878, the now fully automated lighthouse is reputed to be
haunted by the lighthouse keepers who once lived there.
Grant's team, which includes investigators Andy Andrews and Heather
Drolet, is escorted there by Coast Guard boat.
Andy follows an
EMF reading up the spiral staircase. Heather divines energy with her
dowsing rods. An unseen force appears to be moving on the stairs. Grant
takes a folding chair and camps out in the lighthouse attic, hoping to
catch some EVPs.
Back at TAPS headquarters, Andy and Brian
Harnois present their findings to Jason and Grant.
The orbs picked up by
the infrared cameras can be explained by fog, dust and other natural
phenomena. What can't be explained is what a camera recorded in
the attic: Grant gets up and leaves through the only door. Minutes
later, his chair abruptly moves on its own.
As hard as it is for
Jason to admit it, he and Grant report to U.S. Coast Guard Senior Chief
Boatswain's Mate J. Nolda and Boatswain's First Mate Peter Jennings that
the lighthouse indeed does appear to be haunted.
