Haunted Lighthouses of New England
Tuesday , October 7th at 6:30 in Dexter Hall

Lighthouses are picturesque icons that remind us of our rich maritime history, but they also have a dark side.  Lighthouses and ghost stories often seem to go hand in hand. This presentation will focus on some of the macabre tales of NE's coastal beacons, including the lovelorn spirit known as "Ernie" at Connecticut's New London Ledge and the piano playing ghost of Maine's Seguin Island Light.  Please come to this free program to learn compelling facts about ghosts and their haunts here in New England.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Charlton Public Library
